New figures show Scotland is back in recession

Official figures have shown Scotland has followed the UK into a double-dip recession.

The economy contracted slightly in the two quarters between October and March but not by as much as in the UK as a whole.

There was good news with unemployment falling for the fourth month in a row leaving the Scottish jobless rate at 8%.
