Plans have been drawn up for a new bridge over the River Tay at Perth.

A multi-million pound crossing between the North Inch and Scone has been proposed for pedestrians, wheelchair users and cyclists.

The project is being promoted by green transport charity Sustrans and backed by Perth and Kinross Council, but depends on National Lottery funding.

Four designs have been developed by a firm of consultant engineers, including a three-span "signature bridge".

The plans will formally be unveiled in Perth next month.
