Organ donor opt out 'possible'

The health secretary has said Scotland may change to an opt out system for organ donation.

Nicola Sturgeon has urged more people to register to help save lives.

Scotland's donor register rate is already higher than the UK average, with 37% of the population already signed up.

More than 600 people in Scotland are still waiting for a life-saving transplant.
