Dumbarton Rock graffiti clean-up concern

Scotland's mountaineers have said they are worried plans to clean graffiti from Dumbarton Rock could spoil some of the most difficult and most famous climbing routes in the world.

The rock has been crucially important for Scottish climbing since the 1950s and attracts people from around the world.

Historic Scotland say they are planning the clean-up because local people have asked them to.

But BBC Scotland's Huw Williams heard that not everyone wants to see the graffiti removed.
