Lib Dem's Willie Rennie says MSP Bill Walker 'must go now'

The leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats, Willie Rennie, says disgraced MSP Bill Walker should vacate his seat immediately.

Walker was found guilty of 23 counts of domestic abuse against his three ex-wives and a stepdaughter between 1967 and 1995 - but has so far resisted calls to resign.

Mr Rennie says the parliamentary authorities have been looking at various options - including whether his wages could be stopped.

It comes as MSPs return to Holyrood after their Summer break.
