A new leader has been named for the main opposition party at Aberdeen City Council.
Stephen Flynn will take control of the SNP group replacing councillor Jackie Dunbar announced she was stepping down earlier this month.
Cllr Flynn, who represents Kincorth, Nigg and Cove, was voted in as a councillor in October 2015 after predecessor Callum McCaig was elected as MP for Aberdeen South at the general election.
The 27 year old former assistannt to Maureen Watt and Callum McCaig said at the time of his election that he hoped to be “a positive voice, not just for my ward, but for the city” and said he wanted to end the “in-fighting that goes on in the council”.
The current ruling Aberdeen City Council administration is a Labour-led coalition that includes Tories and Independents.
Cllr Dunbar, who represents Northfield and Mastrick North, was appointed last May following the resignation of Callum McCaig.
Cllr Dunbar said she plans stand for re-election in her ward in 2017.
