PARENTS at the school where a 12-year-old pupil was killed by a collapsing wall have called for a replacement campus to be built so families can move on from the tragedy.

A changing room wall at Liberton High school in Edinburgh collapsed on April 1, killing pupil Keane Wallis-Bennett while she was getting ready for PE.

The school's parent council has now urged Edinburgh City Council's education leaders to fast-track a phased extension of the school's building into the next wave of replacement construction works.

Parent representatives told yesterday's full council meeting pupils had suffered symptoms of mental trauma since the tragedy.

City chiefs have agreed to investigate options for accelerating the work but warned changes could affect funding secured from housing developers, who would contribute to new schools.
