A final decision on the future of funding for the Aberdeen International Youth Festival (AIYF) will be decided at a meeting of the full council.

BBC Scotland revealed last month a decision to withdraw AIYF's 2018/19 budget was taken in a private session.

The annual event has been running since 1973 and has hosted an estimated 30,000 young people from around the world.

The finance committee noted the decision and it was referred to full council on Monday.
