A PARTNERSHIP looking at the history of the River Clyde has been formed between the Shipyard Trust and the University of Strathclyde.

The "exciting and inspiring" new project will see the university's department of architecture work alongside the trust to tell the story of the river.

A combination of year four honours and MSc students will study the shipbuilding and social history of the river.
