The World Tonight comes from Edinburgh, where we hear the latest news from the Scottish elections: we speak to the winners and the losers.

We have a report from Aberdeen about the confusion over the ballot papers - why were there so many spoilt votes? And, what does the vote mean for the future - how will the new Prime Minister work with the new Scottish parliament?

And on an election themed programme, we're also in France as they prepare for the second round of their presidential poll.

With Robin Lustig in Edinburgh.
