MND patient persuades Nicola Sturgeon to review care

A young man dying from motor neurone disease (MND) has taken his fight for better care to the first minister.

Gordon Aikman is dedicating the final months of his life to improving services for the 400 people in Scotland who live with MND at any one time.

Mr Aikman has asked Nicola Sturgeon to provide specialist MND care nurses through the NHS and to stop councils charging terminally ill patients for their services.

BBC Scotland's political correspondent Glenn Campbell has been to meet him.
