Poor parking could be made illegal in Scotland

The Scottish Parliament is to consider new legislation to make it an offence to park on pavements throughout Scotland.

SNP MSP Sandra White will publish a bill to help ensure the free movement of pedestrians.

The bill will also tackle the issue of double parked cars which block the road for ambulances and fire engines.

BBC Scotland's Kirsten Campbell reports.
