Plans for a statue of Angus-born AC/DC singer Bon Scott in his home town of Kirriemuir have been approved by councillors.
The 2.4m-high bronze statue, which will stand in Bellies Brae car park, is due to be unveiled at the annual Bonfest event in April.
AC/DC backed the fundraising campaign to commemorate the singer who died in 1980, aged 33.
The council has received over 80 letters of support for the new statue.
