A local councillor has called for a replacement Largs Academy to be placed on the council agenda.

In a statement to the Largs & Millport News Labour member Alex Gallagher said he was disappointed that no consideration appears to have been given to a replacement for Largs Academy in the latest round of bids for Holyrood finance, with preference going to the three towns.

He said: “The physical condition of the local school is poor and a replacement will have to be built sooner rather than later.”
