CCTV is to be upgraded at Aberdeen's Woodend Hospital in a bid to stop children accessing clinical areas.

NHS Grampian said the issue of unauthorised visitors, particularly local school children, entering the hospital has been one of "varying concern over many years".

Talks with Aberdeen City Council, management at the school and Police Scotland have been held.

Any unauthorised visitors causing a nuisance will be reported to police.
