A WARNING has been issued by a West Fife high school about vaping.

Queen Anne High School urged parents to remind their kids of the dangers of vaping after revealing that the use of electronic cigarettes can set off the fire alarms in the building with each false alarm costing £2,000.

In their weekly bulletin, they wrote: "These false alarms have an impact on emergency responders. They lead to fire crews being called out unnecessarily, disrupting training, community safety work, as well as their availability to attend real emergencies."

They said that, due to the severity of the issue, any instances of fire alarms and evacuations because of the use of vapes will be seen as a deliberate attempt and action will be taken from Police Scotland.
