Twelve people, some of them nuns, have been arrested over claims of abuse at a former children’s home in Lanarkshire.
Police said 11 women and one man - all aged between 62 and 85 - had been charged in connection with the abuse of children at Smyllum Park.
The home, which closed in 1981, was run by a Catholic order known as Daughters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul.
Police said a further four people were due to be reported to the Crown Office in connection with their investigation.
Scottish abuse inquiry to be extended
Smyllum Park took in more than 11,600 children over the course of its existence from 1864 to 1981.
It has been hit by claims of sexual and physical abuse and is being investigated as part of the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry (SCAI).
