A woman has been arrested after a shop dummy was entered as a candidate for the council elections in Aberdeen.
The mannequin – which is understood to have been seized by police – originally appeared on the list of potential councillors for the Hazlehead, Ashley and Queens Cross ward.
Grampian Police said a woman, 63, has been charged under the Representation of the People Act.
The dummy was entered under the name Helena Torry.
