The first new police vehicle carrying the logo in both English and Gaelic has hit the road in Dumfries and Galloway.

Police Scotland introduced the new branding earlier this year.

The change is being made as part of the force's commitment to its five-year Gaelic Language Plan.

It said it was keen to ensure that Gaelic-speaking communities across the country were "well served and ably represented" by the national police service.
