§ Mr. Ross
About 1.15 p.m. yesterday the framework and concrete floors of a 6-storey building under construction for the University of Aberdeen suddenly collapsed. Eight men were trapped, three of whom were subsequently rescued. The bodies of the five men killed have been recovered.
There will be a public inquiry under the Fatal Accident Inquiry (Scotland) Act, 1895.
I wish to express my sympathy to those who have been so tragically and suddenly bereaved.
