Balerno High School roof collapses in snow

FIRST-YEAR pupils at a city high school will not be able to return to class until Thursday after heavy snow caused part of a ceiling to collapse.

The weight of snow and icicles on the roof of Balerno High caused part of a ceiling to collapse last Wednesday.

It damaged two ground-floor classrooms, and contractors have been brought in to repair the damage.

Work is still being carried out, and seven classrooms will be out of commission.

A city council spokeswoman said: "Safety is our number one priority."
