Salmond defends Scotland oil reserve predictions

21 August 2014 Last updated at 14:27 BST

Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond has defended estimates of oil reserves, after a warning yesterday from a leading industry figure.

Sir Ian Wood claimed that the Scottish government's predictions for North Sea oil recovery are up to 60% too high.

Mr Salmond was facing questions from MSPs for the last time before Scotland votes in the referendum on independence next month.
