Artists criticise Creative Scotland

One hundred of Scotland's leading artists have launched a fierce attack on the management and running of arts body Creative Scotland.

In an open letter they condemned decision making, disregard for Scottish culture and said the organisation is in an "ongoing crisis".

Among those signing the letter were John Byrne, Alasdair Gray, James Kelman, AL Kennedy, Liz Lochhead and Ian Rankin.

BBC Scotland's arts correspondent Pauline McLean reports.
