Voting is due to end at midnight in the competition to name the new bridge over the Forth.

More than 30,000 people have so far taken part in the contest to select a name from the five on the shortlist.

Caledonia Bridge, Queensferry Crossing and St Margaret's Crossing are reported to be the most popular.

Transport Scotland said the result would be announced later in June. The £800m project is expected to open in 2016.

The other two options are Firth of Forth Crossing and Saltire Crossing.
