Plans to expand the teaching of Gaelic in Edinburgh's secondary schools are set to be put on hold.

The city council is currently conducting a review following a rapid increase in the number of pupils wanting to study the language.

And it had planned to move specialist Gaelic classes from James Gillespie's - where the school roll is currently at its 1150 capacity - to the new Tynecastle High.
