Three more children have been charged in connection with a fire that destroyed a former Forfar primary school.

Fire crews were called to the Wellbrae Primary School building at about 19:00 on 22 October.

Two 12-year-old boys were charged last week.

Police said three boys - a 12-year-old and two 11-year-olds - had now also been charged and would be referred to the Youth Justice Assessor.

Appliances from Dundee, Forfar, Kirriemiur and Brechin tackled the blaze.

The school closed in 2008.
