PUPILS studying French face a further challenge following a council blunder which saw 20 keyboards commonly used in Europe delivered to Scotland.

Angus Council staff were bewildered when they opened some of the boxes and found AZERTY keyboards, which takes its name from the first six letters on the first row of alphabetical keys, commonly used in France.

It has some similarities to the English QWERTY version but differences include having the M key to the right of the L key.

Three of the keyboards had already been taken from their packaging but the rest will be refunded and a spokesman confirmed the ones they keep will be used for French classes, adding: “It was felt that it was best to obtain a refund.”
