Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill has met with senior Grampian Police officers.

The meeting was further indication that he could be set to announce a single police force for Scotland.

Earlier in the week he had told a conference that other options for change could not deliver the same benefits as a single force.

The chief constable of Grampian Police, Colin McKerracher, has been one of the fiercest critics of the proposal.

He is due to formally announce his decision on the future of policing to the Scottish Parliament next week.

Critics of the reform have raised concerns about the anticipated savings and the loss of local accountability.

Mr MacAskill also visited a local policing initiative in the Balnagask area of the city.
