Concerns have been raised about increased traffic levels in the Danestone area of Aberdeen following the opening of a third Don crossing.

The £22.3m Diamond Bridge linking Danestone and Tillydrone was opened last month.

Local councillor Gill Samarai has said more traffic on Danestone's Laurel Drive could pose a danger to children using that route to go to school.

Aberdeen City Council is to assess the need for a school crossing in the area.
