A primary school has been evacuated after asbestos was found in the building.
The substance was discovered during routine work at Flora Stevenson Primary School in Edinburgh.
The 447 pupils were taken to Broughton High School to be collected by their parents.
Edinburgh City Council said that the school will remain closed on Friday while more tests are carried out on the building.
Mike Rosendale, the council's head of schools, said: "A small quantity of asbestos has been disturbed at Flora Stevenson Primary School during routine work which took place out of school hours.
"The health and safety of pupils is of paramount importance, so as a precaution pupils have been transferred to Broughton High School until their parents are able to collect them."
He added: "We will keep parents and staff informed of the situation and more information about the reopening of the school will be available soon."
