A female pupil has been reported to have died after a wall inside her school collapsed on her.
The unnamed girl, whose age has also not been disclosed, was pronounced dead at the scene at Liberton High School in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Emergency services said the incident took place at 10am.
‘Inquiries into the full circumstances surrounding this incident are ongoing and we are working alongside our relevant partner agencies,’ Police Scotland said.
Edinburgh City Council said its staff were providing support to teachers and pupils at the school.
It was gathered that the council was fined £8,000 in February after a girl at the same school was seriously injured when she fell more than 16ft (5m) as teachers tried to free her from a broken-down lift.
The schoolgirl, then aged 15, suffered three fractured vertebrae, bruising over her lower back and a sprained wrist as a result.
She remained in hospital for two days before being discharged and was unable to return to school for a further two weeks, the Heath and Safety Executive (HSE) said at the time.
The HSE confirmed in February that it had investigated the incident and a prosecution was brought against the local authority for ‘serious safety failings’.
