A wall collapsed in an Edinburgh school causing the death of a 12 year old girl when it landed on top of her just before 10:00am.

Her parents where fully informed of the fatal accident as well as a text was sent out to all the parents which read “Important. Accident at school. A pupil has sadly died. Her parents are aware. No-one else is injured.  All the pupils were sent home from school.

The school where aware that the wall was unstable as a 13 year old girl told a teacher months before the fatal accident.

She stated the teacher had said “”it should be fine.” The school has already been fined £8,000 after a 15 year old student fell down a lift shaft and suffered serious injuries.

Firefighters and ambulance all arrived at the scene to help the 12 year old girl though she was pronounced dead at the scene of the fatal accident.
