Teacher arrested over pupil 'assault' at Dumfries school

A teacher has been arrested in connection with an alleged assault on a child in Dumfries and Galloway.

BBC Scotland understands that the alleged incident happened at a school in the Dumfries area in August.

A Police Scotland spokesman confirmed that the 33-year-old woman had been arrested and that a report would be sent to the procurator fiscal.

Dumfries and Galloway Council said it would be "wholly inappropriate" to comment on the matter.
