Pupil, 11 'Caught With Cannabis In Class'
A primary-school pupil has been reported to police after allegedly being caught with cannabis in class.
Officers were called to the school in South Lanarkshire on December 21.
It is understood parents were notified about the incident before the end of term.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: ''An 11-year-old male pupil at a primary school in South Lanarkshire has been referred to the Youth Justice Co-ordinator (a police officer within the Restorative Justice Department) for alleged drugs offences.
''A decision has still to be made as to disposal - whether a referral to the Early and Effective Intervention Co-ordinator - a multi-agency team with a social work lead - or a police report to the Scottish Children's Reporter Administrator.''
A spokesman for South Lanarkshire Council said: ''We are aware of the incident''.
A police watchdog probe was launched after the remains of the 52-year-old were found in a house in Dumfries in February last year.
The accident happened at about 7.50pm on Thursday in Moodiesburn, North Lanarkshire.
More than 70 firefighters were needed to bring the blaze under control at Blochairn Fruit Market in the early hours of Thursday.
