Leaders debate Scotland's financial powers

Scotland's party leaders have clashed over the subject of increasing the nation's financial powers, in another election campaign discussion.

Labour's Jim Murphy pressed Nicola Sturgeon on fiscal autonomy, saying it would create a multi-billion pound hole.

The SNP leader repeatedly asked how much a Labour government would cut.

Meanwhile all the parties said they backed the cap in benefits, with the Conservatives saying they wanted to lower it further.
