Fife Council has launched an internal inquiry into allegations of physical abuse and bullying at a school for children with behavioural difficulties, reports The Scotsman (p3).

The council said that a member of staff had been suspended on full pay while allegations are investigated.

Senior education and social work officials spent a second day at the school yesterday with officers from Fife police.

Oonagh Aitken, corporate manager for social strategy at the council, said classes were continuing as normal.

She told the paper: 'When the investigation is complete, the findings will be made known. Until then, it would be inappropriate to make any further comment.'
