An urgent meeting to try and save a museum in Dumfries and Galloway has been called.
The council has formally objected to the Scottish Government's decision to close Shambellie House, which holds the Scotland's National Museum of Costume.
They have invited the National Museums of Scotland Director and Culture Secretary Fiona Hyslop to an urgent meeting.
Abbey Ward Councillor Tom McAughtrie said:
“The campaign to save Shambellie House has really stepped up a gear and I am glad that all councillors on the committee agreed with Labour’s calls to formally object to the closure.
“The lack of consultation about shutting the museum is totally unacceptable. We need an urgent meeting with the Director of the National Museums of Scotland and the Scottish Culture Secretary to make clear how important Shambellie House is to the area."
