A school pupil in Dumfries is being treated for tuberculosis.
NHS Dumfries and Galloway says the girl from Dumfries High School is being given antibiotics at home.

- breathlessness, which is usually mild to begin with and gradually gets worse
- lack of appetite and weight loss
- a high temperature of 38C (100.4F) or above
- night sweats

More information on TB, including what to do if you think you have caught the infection, is available on the NHS website.
