A fence could be built to stop suicide attempts from a bridge in the centre of Aberdeen.

The proposal comes after councillors raised concerns at the number of people jumping - or threatening to jump - from Union Bridge.

Officials are recommending councillors press ahead with a £120,000 project to add the new fence.

It would still require listed buildings consent. Initial discussions have taken place with Historic Scotland.
