Michael McMahon MSP suspended from Scottish Parliament

A Labour MSP has been suspended from the Scottish Parliament after the presiding officer, Tricia Marwick, accused him of "gross discourtesy".

Michael McMahon, who represents Uddingston and Bellshill, was heard telling Ms Marwick: "You are out of order", as MSPs debated inaccurate figures given by First Minister Alex Salmond.

BBC Scotland's political correspondent Raymond Buchanan reports.
