A primary school in Edinburgh was evacuated after a section of plaster fell from the ceiling on to a member of staff.
The incident happened at St Mary’s Primary School in East London Street earlier today (Tuesday).
It is understood a piece of plaster from a cornice fell on to a teacher’s head, who was unhurt by the incident.
Pupils were then evacuated while safety checks were carried out.
A council spokesman said: “There was a minor incident earlier today at St Mary’s RC Primary School where some plaster became dislodged from a stairwell ceiling.
“Nobody was injured, however as a precaution, the school was evacuated and lessons were held outdoors to allow property staff to complete an inspection and carry out remedial action as necessary.”
