John Swinney has said he will "act quickly" to address controversy over exam results.

The education secretary announced his intention to address the Scottish Parliament on Tuesday to address the situation, where a quarter of grades were changed by the SQA last week.

Mr Swinney is facing a potential no-confidence motion from Scottish Labour over the controversy, with the Scottish Conservatives agreeing to back a motion.

The deputy first minister will set out a series of steps to address the concerns of pupils over results on Tuesday.
