An independent report into the death of a 16-year-old boy who was stabbed at an Aberdeen school is due to be published.

Bailey Gwynne was fatally wounded by a fellow pupil during a fight at Cults Academy on 28 October 2015.

His killer, who cannot be named, was later jailed for nine years after being found guilty of culpable homicide.

The inquiry into issues raised by the tragedy has been led by Andrew Lowe, chairman of child and adult protection for Renfrewshire.

The review has looked at the relationship between Bailey and his killer, as well as the educational, pastoral, health and social care services provided.

It was commissioned by Aberdeen City Council, Police Scotland and NHS Grampian after the schoolboy was fatally stabbed in a fight – which started over a biscuit.

The report was originally due to be published last month but was put back. It is now due to be released at 10:15.

Aberdeen City Council has employed the services of PR consultancy Morrison Media Strategies to handle the release of the report.

In March, BBC Scotland revealed that concerns about the killer, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were voiced nine years ago when, as a primary pupil, he threw rocks at another child.

The incident resulted in the victim being treated for concussion.
