Angry parents have called for police to search lockers at an Inverness secondary school after a pupil bought drugs at the school gates.
The 14-year-old girl was sold cannabis outside Millburn Academy.
But it is understood she was so affected by the substance that she fell and injured her head, resulting in her being taken to Raigmore Hospital for treatment.
An 18-year-old youth has now been reported to the procurator fiscal in connection with the incident.
But it has been reported that two mothers, who did not want to be named, claimed that drugs were common at the school and one of them called for searches to be carried out of the premises, including pupils’ lockers.
She said that her teenage daughter had been offered drugs by a pupil at the school.
The incident was reported to police, however Highland Council said yesterday that no evidence was found by police.
A Highland Council spokeswoman said: “We can confirm that Millburn Academy was contacted by a parent at the end of last year with concerns about drugs regarding an individual pupil in the school. This matter was fully investigated by senior staff in the school with no evidence found and the police were informed of the matter at that time.”
A police spokesman said: “Police Scotland will robustly deal with those individuals who choose to engage in supply activity and the public are thanked for their assistance and any such reports will be investigated accordingly.”
