Team meet staff in response to health and safety concerns.

The independent team reviewing reported health and safety concerns at Buchanan and St Ambrose High school campus in Coatbridge visited the schools today.

Paul Cackette and Dr Margaret Hannah, who are leading the review, met with the headteachers of Buchanan High and St Ambrose High schools, public health experts from NHS Lanarkshire and representatives of North Lanarkshire Council.

The team will also meet Fulton MacGregor MSP later today and will make arrangements to meet with parents next week.
