13 schools in Kingston are being looked into as part of the RAAC concrete investigation.

45 other council buildings have also been identified to be surveyed, and the authority says these will be inspected urgently.

Yesterday, the education secretary was forced to apologise after going on a sweary rant about the handling of the situation.

It’s also been revealed Gillian Keegan went on holiday when more evidence of the material being used came to light.

Kingston Council statement:

No Kingston schools have been asked to close any of their buildings.

As a precautionary measure the council has requested surveys to inspect council buildings that were constructed during the decades of concern to identify whether they may potentially contain RAAC.
