Veritech Systems Ltd will be providing the 8 camera system that will fitted by their CCTV engineers.

The cameras will overlook the key external areas of the school focusing on the recent hot spots of which vandals have been targeting.

"It is important to push forward to ensure that both the Personnel and Pupils of Forest Park School Secondary Site have the best possible educational experience."

Councillor Penman also 'thanked' the Daily Echo for reporting on the issue.

He said: "Having this issue reported in the echo has benefited the school greatly."
