Is it time to invest in stock markets?

As the stock markets are starting to head upwards again there are suggestions that people should put more of their savings into stocks and shares.

BBC Breakfast's Stephanie McGovern asked David Braithwaite of Citrus Financial Planning whether now is a good time to start investing.

He warned that first time investors should plan for the "long-term" and choose less risky stocks.
