Glasgow's Duke of Wellington statue to keep cone

Plans to end a long-standing tradition of placing a traffic cone on Glasgow's iconic Duke of Wellington statue have been dropped after a public backlash.

Glasgow City Council wanted to raise the statue's plinth as part of a £65,000 project to refurbish the monument which stands outside the Gallery of Modern Art.

BBC News Scotland's Catriona Renton reports.
