Pupils across the Capital are set for a mass walkout from school in protest against cuts to education budgets.

Hundreds of pupils from several city high schools are planning to join an NUS Scotland demonstration later this month outside the parliament.

It comes after a planned city-wide demonstration outside the Scottish Parliament, which was organised by pupils and was due to take place today, was cancelled following discussions with police over stewarding.
