Scotland's newest MSP has been sworn in during a ceremony at Holyrood.

Cara Hilton was elected last week to represent Dunfermline, after a by-election caused by the resignation of disgraced MSP Bill Walker.

The victory represented a gain from the SNP, who had taken the seat in the 2011 Holyrood election.

Mr Walker, who was jailed for domestic abuse, was thrown out of the SNP but continued as an independent until he decided to resign.
