Tens of thousands of school pupils are to have their exam results upgraded after the Scottish government agreed to accept teacher estimates of scores.

The government u-turn follows an outcry from pupils after a moderation system saw 125,000 estimated results being downgraded.

All results that were downgraded will now be withdrawn and replaced by the original estimates.

The move affects about 75,000 pupils across Scotland.

Education Secretary John Swinney said he was sorry for the "feeling of unfairness" caused by the downgrading.

Opposition parties in the Scottish Parliament are pushing for a vote of no confidence in Mr Swinney Holyrood, with Labour and the Conservatives calling for him to quit.
