A Fife cathedral has been closed to visitors due to a potential safety risk.

St Andrews Cathedral and graveyard are being closed to the public until further notice – one of 19 Historic Environment Scotland properties affected following a recent inspection.

Inspections recently carried out at some of its properties identified a potential safety risk to visitors and staff from unstable masonry at high level.

As a result, a decision was taken to close or partially close some sites as a precautionary measure until inspections can take place.
