Health officials in Scotland are screening the family and friends of a six-year-old girl who has contracted the E. coli 0157 bacterium.

The four teachers and 92 pupils of Hill of Fearn Primary School in Easter Ross, where the girl is a pupil, have also been given advice on hygiene. A spokesman for Highland Council said: "We have been advised there is no public health issue involved." The girl is being looked after at her home and is not ill, he added.
