A BBC Radio Scotland independence referendum debate held on Lewis is to be aired.

The event - offering the chance to question some of the region's leading figures - was held on Wednesday in Stornoway Town Hall.

Recorded in front of a mixed audience of "Yes", "No" and undecided voters, the debate was chaired by BBC Scotland's Craig Anderson.

The full debate can be heard on FM between 17:00 and 18:00.

It will also be available online.

The referendum will be held on 18 September when voters will be asked the Yes/No question: "Should Scotland be an independent country?"
