Up to 300 jobs could be created after plans for a new restaurant and cinema development in the heart of Aberdeen were approved.

The multi-million pound plans are to expand the Bon Accord and St Nicholas shopping centres.

They include a 28,000 sq ft cinema complex featuring seven screens, with the capacity to seat 800 people.

The approval by Aberdeen City Council also paves the way for seven new restaurants.

Craig Stevenson, the Bon Accord and St Nicholas centre manager, said: "We are delighted to have the support of Aberdeen City Council for a project we are all incredibly excited about.

"Being granted planning consent is an important milestone."
