The third Don crossing in Aberdeen is to open next week, following months of delays.

The £22m road bridge linking Danestone and Tillydrone is aimed at easing congestion in the north of the city.

It was supposed to be completed late last year but issues with re-routing underground utilities have caused a series of delays.

The new crossing, which is expected to the called 'the Diamond Bridge' - will be opened on Thursday 9 June.
