Footballer Denis Law kicks off campaign to remove 'no ball games' signs
The former Manchester United star was in Aberdeen at the start of the council-led project.
Football legend Denis Law has kicked off a campaign to remove "no ball games" signs in Aberdeen.
The former Manchester United striker was in his home town on Friday at the start of the project.
In August, Aberdeen City Council became the first local authority in Scotland to agree to remove the signs.
They were put up by councils across the country as a warning to children but have never been legally enforceable.
All 1500 signs across Aberdeen are expected to be removed by mid-August 2016.
Aberdeen Greenspace, which campaigned for the signs to be removed, has offered the council £10,000 to support the project.
