Candidates from seven political parties and an independent will stand in a by-election to win seats on Aberdeen City Council.

Two people will be elected to serve the Bridge of Don ward when voters go to the polls on 3 October.

It comes after the death of the SNP's Sandy Stuart in July.

This was followed by the resignation of Conservative Bridge of Don councillor Brett Hunt.
