Remembering Dunblane Shootings

We join people all over Scotland today to mark the 25th anniversary of Britain’s worst mass shooting.

Sixteen schoolchildren, all of them aged just five and six, were tragically killed alongside the teacher who tried to protect them in Dunblane Primary School. A local forty three year old man had opened fire on a gym class, before taking his own life.

The shocking massacre led to tougher safety rules in schools and the introduction of some of the world’s toughest gun laws. Today, we remember all those lives lost on 13th March 1996. Our sympathies once again extended to the families of all the victims.
