A 15-year-old girl has been arrested after five pupils were allegedly shot with a BB gun and a police officer assaulted on a school bus.

It is understood the incident happened in South Lanarkshire on 24 August.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said no-one required medical assistance.

The girl has been excluded from school and is now the subject of a report to the Scottish Children's Reporter Administration.
