Parents and carers of children at an Inverness primary school have been assured a busy road crossing patrol will be maintained.

Cradlehall Primary’s headteacher Lawrence Sutherland sent a note to guardians of kids at his school yesterday (Thursday, September 16) warning them to make alternative arrangements after suspension of the lollipop person service across Culloden Road.

He wrote: “The above service is suspended until further notice with immediate effect. Alternative arrangements are in place for this afternoon.

“Thereafter, please ensure you make alternative arrangements for your child/children.”

Highland Council has clarified the matter, saying an illness absence is to blame for the temporary suspension.

A Council spokeswoman confirmed the service had not been terminated and said: “The Highland Council do not comment on personnel matters, however parents at Cradlehall Primary School received a letter which advised them to make alternate travel arrangements after a staff illness.”
