Investigation launched after Shirley Manson comments

Shirley Manson of Garbage has triggered an investigation after she mentioned being seduced by a music teacher when she was 15.

Manson told the Sydney Morning Herald last week she had sex with a music teacher in his van after class, but she stopped when she found out he was doing the same with all her friends. She did not name the teacher.

The Scotsman reports the Edinburgh City Council is looking through records for evidence of sex assault claims in the 1980s. Manson has talked of the abuse before but never said other girls were involved.

A spokeswoman for the city council says they're taking the allegations seriously.
