Dundee City Council has named its apprentice of the year.
Michael McNeil, 2nd year apprentice gas engineer, was presented with the Bill McKay Trophy on Tuesday (Feb 5).

The trophy is presented annually to the apprentice who has achieved the best results at college and work during their apprenticeship.
Depute Convener of Neighbourhood Services Councillor Anne Rendall said: “I would like to congratulate this year’s winner and runner up, I know they put in a lot of hard work over the course of their apprenticeship.
“The council has fantastic apprenticeship schemes that help and encourage our young people to gain skills and qualifications.”
