A pupil was taken to hospital following a crash between a school bus and a lorry in the north-east.
The coach, carrying 13 pupils from Inverurie Academy to a football match, was involved in the collision on the A90 southbound to Dundee road, a mile south of Drumlithie.
Nobody was seriously injured, but one of the pupils was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary as a precaution.
The group had been travelling to compete against a Mearns Academy team.
In addition to a police unit, two paramedic teams, a specialist road accident doctor and firefighters were also called to assist.
The school bus, owned by Burns Coaches, which is based in Tarves, near Ellon, was extensively damaged.
The youngsters returned to the school in another vehicle as Aberdeenshire Council contacted parents and guardians.

A council spokesman said: “A bus carrying Inverurie Academy pupils to a football match was in collision with another vehicle on the A90 at around 3.15pm yesterday.
“Thankfully there were no serious injuries, although one pupil was taken to hospital as a precaution.”
The road was partially blocked while the vehicles were recovered but it reopened a short time later.
A Scottish Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We dispatched two ambulances, a BASICS doctor and a manager to the scene. We transported one patient to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.”
Inverurie and District councillor Judy Whyte said: “I am aware there was a bus involved in an accident and I have been informed there were no serious injuries.
“I am very glad to have heard that and I am sure the school will have taken steps to ensure the safety of everyone on board.”
The bus operator could not be reached for comment.
