Carbuncle award goes to Linwood

Linwood in Renfrewshire has been voted the most dismal town in Scotland.

The town has become the latest recipient of the "plook on a plinth" or the "carbuncle" award from Urban Realm magazine.

The award was created to provoke debate about the quality of development in Scotland's towns and cities.

Denny residents asked for the award in 2010 after no-one wanted to pick up the award on behalf of winner John O'Groats.
