The third Don crossing in Aberdeen opened to the public on Thursday afternoon, following months of delays.

The £22.3m Diamond Bridge linking Danestone and Tillydrone is aimed at easing congestion.

It was supposed to be completed late last year but issues with re-routing underground utilities caused a series of delays. A worker also died in an accident on the site.

The Diamond Bridge name was chosen by local schoolchildren.
