Work begins today on demolishing the school gym where 16 children and their teacher were massacred by a gunman last month. Bereaved parents of the Dunblane primary schoolchildren, most of whom were aged five, had the final say in deciding that the building should be pulled down.

The work will be completed well before pupils return on Monday from their Easter holiday. Meanwhile the Dunblane inquiry chaired by the leading Scottish judge Lord Cullen will hold a preliminary hearing in Stirling on 1 May. It will deal with procedural issues ahead of the full inquiry, which is likely to start in late May or early June and last about four weeks.
