A Peterhead school has had to close today after parts of its ceiling fell to the ground.
Peterhead Central School will be shut today after a 3metre wide piece of plaster was found on the staircase.
No one is believed to have been injured as the building was empty at the time of the incident.
A spokesperson for Aberdeenshire Council said: “This morning a three-metre-wide section of plaster from the ceiling of Peterhead Central School was discovered in the building’s stairwell.
“No injuries have been reported as no-one was in the building at the time.
“While investigations into the cause of the damage are ongoing, the area has been cordoned off leaving one fewer fire escape available for use. As a result, a decision has been made to close the school.
“Parents have been notified and will continue to updated as further details become available.”
