MSPs gear up for Scottish election in May

MSPs will return to Holyrood after the Christmas recess with the parties jostling for position in the upcoming election campaign.

The SNP will pledge to do more for working families, Labour says it will help first-time house buyers, the Conservatives will back school reforms and the Liberal Democrats promise a programme which is "bright, green and liberal" as the Greens claim their rivals' slogans are empty.

BBC Scotland political editor Brian Taylor reports.
