Further allegations have been made of sexual and physical abuse by monks at a former boarding school.

Five pupils of the Catholic Fort Augustus Abbey school recently told a BBC Scotland investigation that they were molested and beaten by monks.

Detective Chief Inspector Pamela Ross said: “Further individuals were identified as part of the investigation and a further number of former pupils have come forward to speak to us.

“We understand it must be very difficult to speak about such matters but if anyone has any information about this case, they are encouraged to come forward.”
