Mary Queen of Scots gets first public statue in Scotland

There has never been a public statue to Mary Queen of Scots in Scotland, the country of her birth.

Regarded as one of the more colourful Stuart monarchs, her life was full of murder and intrigue.

More than 400 years after her death, a monument is being created by sculptor David Annand.

The statue, which will be unveiled at Linlithgow Palace in April, will be the first public statue with access all year round.

BBC Scotland's Elizabeth Quigley was given exclusive access to the studio where the first statue of the monarch is taking shape.
