Teacher suspended in kiss probe
A supply teacher at a Falkirk Secondary school has been suspended over allegations he kissed two schoolgirls in a classroom.

It is understood the 43-year-old was teaching at Grangemouth High when the incident happened on Friday 18 January.

Later that same evening a complaint was made by one of the pupil's parents.

A spokesman for Central Scotland Police said a man had been charged and a report had been forwarded to the procurator fiscal.

Falkirk Council confirmed a teacher had been suspended pending the outcome of an investigation.
