The Scotsman (p5) reports on Glasgow city council's decision to post security guards at a primary school after a man who claimed to have a gun tried to force his way into the building.

No-one was injured and it later emerged that there were no children on the premises at the time of the incident.

A spokesman for Glasgow city council's education department told the paper that the school had been secured and that there was no threat to the children.

He confirmed that security guards would be placed at the school for several days to provide reassurance.

The spokesman also told the paper that like every other education authority, Glasgow was awaiting Lord Cullen's recommendations on a strategic approach to school security, though it was installing door entry systems and other measures as local circumstances dictated.
