The fire safety guidance, developed by the Scottish Government and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, has now been posted to all high-rise properties in Perthshire, and is available in libraries and community centres.

Mr Swinney said: “Fire safety is a critical issue for all homes, and this is particularly true for high-rise buildings.

“I am therefore pleased that the Scottish Government has taken proactive steps to raise awareness of this vital issue. The guidance provided contains practical fire safety advice on how to prevent fires and reduce the risk of fires in high-rise buildings.
