Trams option proposed for Aberdeen by city council

Trams could return to the streets of Aberdeen under proposals revealed by the city council.

A strategic infrastructure plan to come before councillors next week includes the possibility of reintroducing some kind of tram or light rail system.

It suggests approaching the Scottish government to carry out a feasibility study.

The opposition SNP group has described it as "pie in the sky".

However the council leader, Labour's Barney Crockett, said it was something that could be considered.
