Councillors in Aberdeen have rejected plans to make all taxis in the city wheelchair accessible by 2018.

It was decided at a meeting of the licensing committee that a full consultation should take place on implementing a new policy that could deliver a "mixed fleet".

Five councillors had wanted to press ahead with a 100% wheelchair accessible fleet.

However, a total of 11 councillors voted for the consultation.
