Aberdeen set for Hogmanay fireworks display

Aberdeen's Hogmanay fireworks display will go ahead this year, despite earlier fears about funding.
The event had been facing the axe after sponsorship dried up.
However, councillors have now opted to spend £50,000 from the Common Good Fund to put on a display to see in the new year.
Fresh efforts will be made to attract private sector sponsors for future years.
