Craiginches jail veg patch hailed as inmate success

Craiginches prison in Aberdeen was once branded "idle, failing and dirty" by prison inspectors.

As the jail prepares to close, ahead of a move to a super-prison in nearby Peterhead, it is now being hailed as a "model" for reintroducing prisoners back into the community.

Supporters have claimed the prison's Roots and Shoots gardening project could be introduced in other prisons to help cut re-offending rates.

BBC Scotland's Fiona Stalker has been finding out more about the scheme.
