A primary school in Moray has been forced to close after nearly a third of its pupils were affected by a stomach bug.

Burghead Primary will be closed on Thursday and Friday, to allow a deep clean to take place.

Moray Council said 32 children from the school - which has a roll of 110 - had fallen ill, as well as several members of staff.

The school is expected to reopen on Monday.
