Teachers in West Dunbartonshire have voted to accept a recommended package to end a long-running dispute.

Secondary schools in the area have been hit by six strike days since January in an ongoing dispute about possible cuts to principal teacher posts.

Members of the Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS) union have voted by 86.6% to 11.4%, on a turnout of 83.4%, in favour of the deal.

The dispute has been running for almost 13 weeks.

The EIS said the settlement would mean that a new curricular model would be based on subject principal teachers rather than seeing them removed.
