DWP returns motability car as appeal progresses

A woman who had lost the right to a Motability car, after filling in her application incorrectly, has had her car returned by the Department of Work and Pensions while it considers her appeal.

Gillian Rodgers had been assessed as no longer eligible for the scheme and faces losing access to her car.

She is one of 70,000 people in Scotland who receive payments to help with cars and electric wheelchairs and who are being reassessed for the new Personal Independent Payment which replaces the Disability Living Allowance.

BBC Scotland's Ian Hamilton has been to meet Gillian and has been following her story.
