Trade link for Ghana and Greenock

A unique link giving employment and hope has been forged between Ghana and Greenock.

Shea butter, a product of a wild-growing nut in Ghana, has been exported to Scotland where it is turned into premium soap and cosmetics.

The process provides a regular income for some of Ghana's poorest people who harvest the nut.

BBC Scotland's social affairs correspondent Reevel Alderson reports how the project has also helped recovering drug addicts in Inverclyde.
