Father's tribute to tragic pupil

THE father of the 12-year-old girl who was killed when a changing room wall collapsed on top of her has left roses at the school where the tragedy happened.

Clark Bennett's daughter Keane Wallis-Bennett was killed at Liberton High, Edinburgh, on Tuesday. The tragedy sparked urgent checks at schools in the city and inspectors have cordoned off several free-standing walls at other premises. Other councils are also carrying out "precautionary" inspections of their buildings.

Mr Bennett, a chef, looked at the array of bright flowers, cuddly toys, cards and letters that were placed under the entrance sign to the school by family, pupils and friends.

In a statement released earlier by police, Keane's family said she was their "princess who dreamed of being Prime Minister".
