Scots autism strategy launched

An estimated 50,000 people in Scotland are living with autism.

Scottish councils recognise only 7,000 and service provision is patchy.

A strategy for autism has been launched by the government with over £13m being spent in the next four years.

Campaigners have welcomed the move but warn there's no "one size fits all" solution.
