Aberdeen City of Culture 2017 team answer questions in London

The team behind Aberdeen's bid to be UK City of Culture in 2017 has been in London to answer follow-up questions about the city's application.

Aberdeen has applied to become the next city of culture, alongside 10 other towns and cities.

The agency running the Department for Culture, Media and Sport competition has been seeking extra details from all the applicants.

A spokesman for Aberdeen 2017 said they had given a good account of themselves.

Comedian Billy Connolly is among those who have already backed Aberdeen, alongside singer Emeli Sande, percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie and author Stuart MacBride.

Dundee is the other Scottish city in the running.
