Aberdeen Christmas lights 'set to go ahead'
Aberdeen will get its new Christmas lights despite earlier fears a legal wrangle could disrupt it, the council has said.
Doubts had been raised that the local authority could not sign a contract with an illuminations company.
However, following a hearing at Aberdeen Sheriff Court, the council said it now expected to be able to proceed.
The annual lights are a popular attraction along Union Street.
It was thought the council could have been prohibited from entering into a contract with its preferred bidder while a civil action brought by another firm was active.
