ALL school trips abroad have been cancelled until next year amid concerns over safety following the terrorist attacks in Paris.

Both Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire councils have stopped all foreign trips after the attacks, which killed 130 people.

In Aberdeen all trips for pupils abroad have been cancelled until March next year.

It is understood only one trip falls into this bracket, which was a trip for one school where pupils were due to travel to France.

Planned trips for summer 2016 are not yet affected and the decision on banning the trips will be reviewed.

In Aberdeenshire one trip has been cancelled so far and three trips in the spring will be affected.

The decision follows Foreign Office advice to all schools in the UK to put a halt to school trips to France until Monday.
