Three more teenagers have been charged after an Aberdeenshire primary school was badly vandalised.

Police Scotland said one boy aged 13 and two aged 17 were charged in relation to the incident at Markethill Primary School in Turriff.

The school was closed for two days following the attack last weekend. The cost of the damage has been estimated at £200,000.

A 14-year-old girl and a man aged 18 were charged earlier this week.

Police said a report would be submitted to the procurator fiscal.

Det Sgt George Nixon said: "We would like to thank the local community for its continued support and assistance in relation to this investigation."
