SECURITY is being reviewed at a Linwood school after it was targeted by thieves.

The break-in took place at East Fulton Primary last Monday evening, with the crooks escaping with a laptop.

There was then a further report of an attempted break-in at nearby St Benedict’s High School shortly afterwards, although nothing was taken on that occasion.
