The independent reviewer examining the circumstances surrounding the death of schoolboy Bailey Gwynne has made a public appeal for “relevant information”.

A 16-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was detained for nine years after being found guilty of culpable homicide by stabbing Bailey, 16, and carrying weapons at Cults Academy last October.

Following the verdict Aberdeen City Council, Police Scotland and NHS Grampian commissioned an independent review which is being led by Andrew Lowe.

He is now offering to speak to anyone who has relevant information to offer the inquiry.

The reviewer can meet them in Aberdeen on Tuesday, June 21, and meeting slots will be allocated on a first come-first served basis.

The probe is looking at the relationship between the boys, and the educational, pastoral, health and social care services provided.

Mr Lowe was appointed as the independent reviewer in March and the terms of reference were announced the following month.

The findings of the review are expected to be published in September.

Members of the public can email AndrewLowe@aberdeencity.gcsx.gov.uk by 10am on Monday, June 20.
