Two 13-year-olds have been charged after 10 school pupils fell ill after apparently taking tablets.

The alarm was raised just after lunchtime on Friday at Dunfermline High School in Fife, with the substances believed to have been consumed outside the grounds.

The Scottish Ambulance Service said six pupils were treated at the scene while a further four were taken to hospital.

Police said that a boy and a girl, both aged 13, have been charged in connection with the incident.

A report will be submitted to the Children's Reporter.
