An Inverness school had to be evacuated this morning after a bomb threat was received by police.
Officers were called to Charleston Academy at 9.15am and the school evacuated until police declared the call as a hoax.
Police cars were parked outside for more than hour.
No one at the 800-pupil school was thought to be hurt or at risk during the incident.
Pupils were allowed back into the building at 10.19am.
A police spokesperson said: “Enquiries into the matter remain ongoing at this time and officers would ask if anyone has any information about the incident that they contact Police Scotland on 101.
“It should be noted that hoax calls which involve the emergency services are taken extremely seriously and if found to be malicious may result in a person or persons being reported to the Procurator Fiscal.”
