Deputy First Minister John Swinney will give MSPs his response to a report into the death of Aberdeen schoolboy Bailey Gwynne next week.

Bailey, 16, was stabbed during a fight with a fellow pupil at Cults Academy.

The schoolboy's killer is serving nine years for culpable homicide.

The review, conducted by child welfare professional Andrew Lowe, made 21 recommendations last October. Mr Swinney will give a statement on Tuesday.

The review found the pupil's death was "potentially avoidable".
