Two Inverness primary schools reopened along with others in the city and the rest of the country today despite a number of confirmed Covid-19 cases over the past two weeks.

A Highland Council spokesman confirmed that both Dalneigh and Lochardil primary schools were both open as normal today.

The spokesman said: "There is no impact on the return of Dalneigh and Lochardil as both schools are open today.

"Covid-19 cases were identified in each of the settings last week and the week before, however, both schools worked with Health Protection Scotland and all necessary actions were taken, with those affected self-isolating at home. Letters were distributed to each school community."
