A fault in a solar panel has prompted the closure of a school in southern Scotland.

Dumfries and Galloway Council said the head teacher at Beattock Primary had made the decision "purely as a precautionary measure".

A short statement from the local authority said it was "focussed on resolving" the issue.

The school was able to reopen as normal on Wednesday.
