Dunblane tragedy 10 years ago today

Sixteen children and their teacher, Gwen Mayor, were killed on March 13, 1996, when misfit loner Thomas Hamilton burst into Dunblane Primary School gym and opened fire, before shooting himself.

Can't believe this was ten years ago! Absolutely terrible, so sad. Those poor kids. It was SUCH a horrible shock.

And Andy Murray went to that school didn't he?

I remember reading the headline "massacre at Perthshire primary school" and for a second thought it was my brother's school, my former primary.

Absolutely horrific.

P.S. Andy Murray did indeed go to that school, Sian.
