An Olympic-sized swimming pool for Aberdeen has taken a step closer after a planning application was lodged with the city council.

Under the proposals, the former Linksfield Academy would be demolished to make way for the 50m pool and a separate diving pool.

It is adjacent to the new Sports Village.

The application from the council, Sportscotland and University of Aberdeen, could see eight or 10 lanes.
