WATCHDOGS have criticised the way asbestos is monitored in Glasgow council buildings.

The local authority's own internal auditors have warned that failure to keep comprehensive records means they can't be sure all premises have been checked for the material.

The auditors said: "City Property does not have a comprehensive list of all properties. As such the auditor cannot be assured that all properties have received an asbestos survey."

A spokesman for the council said: "We audit our processes and procedures because we want them to be as robust as they possibly can... while these weaknesses posed a risk to the council itself, they did not present a danger to the physical health of the public or staff."
