AN Edinburgh school’s trip to London was cut short as pupils were staying in a hotel near to the scene of the attack.

The group from Edinburgh Academy had travelled south to visit Shakespeare’s Globe and staying at the Southwark hotel, on the perimeter of the police cordon.

Planned activities were cancelled on Sunday and the group of teenagers were taken to King’s Cross to catch a train home.
