Onlookers assembled along the riverside in the autumn sunshine to see the 27m twin rig trawler Valhalla being launched into the water.

The vessel, made at Parkol, will be fishing out of Fraserburgh, Scotland, with a crew of eight.

Michael Smith commented on Parkol's Facebook page: "Some boat her, well done Parkol and good fishing to the skipper and crew."
