Former Aberdeen Labour councillor Willie Young has become a Deputy Lieutenant of the city.

Mr Young, the city's former finance convener, lost his seat at the local government elections back in May.

He was commissioned by the Lord-Lieutenant, Lord Provost Barney Crockett.

Also joining the team of Deputy Lieutenants at Tuesday's commissioning ceremony was Isabel McIntyre, former head teacher at St Machar Academy.
