A hard-hitting drama is once again touring South Lanarkshire secondary schools in the run-up to Bonfire night.

Toast, performed by the Arkeen Theatre Group, is a short play aimed at young teenagers and designed to raise their awareness of the dangers posed by fireworks.

The play’s run kicked off last week and will tour the area’s high schools until November 4.
