Pupils and parents have marched in protest about the proposed closure of a village primary school in Moray.

Plans are in place to merge Findochty Primary School with another school in Portknockie, Portessie or Cullen, as part of a 10-year improvement plan.

Members of the Findochty community marched along the High Street in Elgin and presented a petition to the council.

Councillors will discuss the plans early next month.

On Sunday, hundreds of people turned out at a protest rally over plans to close Milne's High School in Fochabers along with 10 primary schools in Moray.

The proposals would also see several new schools built.
