Aberdeen councillors have reaffirmed their commitment to a new bridge over the River Don at the proposed site near Tillydrone.

Supporters of the project insist the bridge would ease traffic congestion.

There was a lengthy debate on Wednesday, and councillors voted to reaffirm their commitment to the so-called third Don crossing.
