Plans to demolish Perth City Hall have been rejected by Historic Scotland.

Perth and Kinross Council wanted to knock down the 100-year-old B-listed building to make way for a plaza in the city centre.

Historic Scotland said the council had failed to prove the case for demolition and had not fully explored the alternatives.
