Charges against a woman accused of assaulting young children at a private school in Aberdeen have been dropped.

Hannah Jamieson was accused of the alleged offences at the Hamilton School on various dates in 2013.

The school was closed the following year, after inspectors expressed concerns.

The Crown Office said in a statement that it was "no longer in the public interest to continue with the prosecution".

It said it had reached that conclusion as a result of further information provided about the circumstances of the alleged offences, and the accused.
