A by-election following by the death of long-serving Aberdeen councillor Ron Clark will be held on 19 May, it has been announced.

The Lib Dem representative for Dyce, Bucksburn and Danestone had been in public service for more than 30 years.

He died last month, leading to tributes from political colleagues from all parties.

It was decided not to coincide the by-election with the Scottish Parliament elections on 5 May.
