Businessman Sir Ian Wood has told Aberdeen City Council funding could still be made available for a "transformational" project.

He said the Wood Family Trust "would be prepared to look at providing some appropriate funding support" for a new heart for the city.

It follows new proposals for a major renovation of Union Terrace Gardens.

Architect John Halliday's design would see the gardens partly raised but remain sunken.

The future of Union Terrace Gardens has been a controversial issue in Aberdeen.

Major redevelopment plans were rejected by the council last year.

Sir Ian had offered £50m towards the £140m City Garden Project.
