Prince Charles has been visiting the derelict Broadford Works mill site in Aberdeen amid hopes new life can be breathed into the area.

The former Richards textiles mill has become a target for vandals and fireraisers.

The Prince's Regeneration Trust has been playing a key role in finding a future for the site.

The trust's Kit Martin said cafes and shops could be a feature of the site, which could be "something special".

He said Prince Charles was "incredibly excited" by the prospect.
