Parents are furious at plans to spend £208,000 patching up a school building that is “beyond serviceable life”.

They claim pupils in the leaking flat-roofed wooden building at Loanhead’s Paradykes Primary School are being taught in terrible conditions.

Classes are filled with buckets to collect water, electricity has had to be switched off and there is no hot water, according to members of the parent council, who want a new school building.
