A 16-year-old boy has been charged in connection with a fire at a primary school in Aberdeenshire.

About 30 firefighters spent five hours tackling the blaze at Kinellar Primary School in Blackburn on New Year's Day.

The fire was reported to police at about 02:15.

Aberdeenshire Council said this would not affect teaching, and the school reopened as planned after the Christmas holiday on 6 January.
