Part of an Inverness city centre street is to be closed for an event promoting children's right to be able to play.

The occasion planned for Church Street would form part of Highland Council's efforts to support a Scottish government children's play strategy.

In a report to councillors, council officers have set out progress and also further plans to provide youngsters with opportunities to play.

Officers said the "play event" was planned for later this year.

Highland Council's education, children and adult services committee will consider the report at a meeting on Wednesday.
