Alex Salmond 'very sad' at Stewart Stevenson's resignation

Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond has said he was "very sad" at the resignation of Scottish Transport Minster Stewart Stevenson.

The minister resigned over his handling of the travel chaos caused by the extreme winter weather after snow and ice brought much of central Scotland's road network to a standstill earlier this week.

Alex Salmond said he was "very sad that a decent man, a competent minister, has been forced into resignation because of the extremeties of the climate''.
