Campaigners have taken to the streets of Aberdeen to make their views known on pollution.
A demonstration to raise awareness of the extent of Aberdeen’s air pollution was held on St Nicholas Street, with the hope of encouraging the council to introduce a low emission zone.
The local authority is currently drawing up plans for such a zone, considering how best to implement it in Aberdeen.
Last year, the Scottish Government said that Aberdeen and three other cities will have one in operation by 2020.
Friends of the Earth Aberdeen co-ordinator Gregor McAbery said: “Air pollution in Scotland is responsible for 2,500 early deaths each year.
“Toxic air from traffic in Aberdeen put our most vulnerable at risk – children, elderly and those who are already suffering ill health.
“There was clear support for a robust city centre low emissions zone.”
