An Aberdeen MSP has hit out at the lack of progress on planned improvements at a city pool.
Northfield Swimming Pool was closed by Sport Aberdeen in March after technical and electrical problems.
At the time, the Evening Express reported a £3 million investment at the 25-metre pool was to be shared equally by Aberdeen City Council and Sport Aberdeen.
It was expected improvements would include a sport and wellness hub.
Donside MSP Mark McDonald has written to Aberdeen City Council chief executive Angela Scott and Sport Aberdeen to find out when work may start.
He said the situation was “unacceptable”.

Mr McDonald said: “This pool has been closed for nine months and I am advised that work is yet to begin on a project that is expected to take a year.
“This is a completely unacceptable delay and the community of Northfield deserve better.
“The council need to provide answers as to why this is taking so long.”
Sport Aberdeen managing director Alistair Robertson said: “At the time of the facility closure Sport Aberdeen consulted current users, including groups and clubs, to identify alternative options.
“This included the relocation of clubs and swimming lessons to other pools within the area where possible.
“We recognise it is not easy for everyone to get to other facilities and we are supporting Aberdeen City Council in moving this project forward.”
An Aberdeen City Council spokesman said: “We have received a letter from Mr McDonald and will respond in due course in line with our normal process.”
