A sickness bug has struck down 70 pupils, forcing a school to close for the rest of the week.

A deep clean will be carried out while the school remains closed until Monday.
In a letter to parents and carers, head teacher Fiona McKellar said: "As you will be aware, there has been a high level of sickness throughout the school and nursery this week.
"We have taken advice from Highland Council, school nursing team and the health protection team.

"The school will be undergoing a deep clean and we will be closed on Wednesday 22, Thursday 23, and Friday, November 24, to allow pupils and staff time to recover and prevent possible reinfection.
