Scots teen backs international blood donor campaign

A teenager who received blood transfusions for the first two years of her life has helped to launch a campaign urging Scots to donate blood.

Bobbi McBurnie, 14, was born weighing less than 2lbs and had to be given blood transfusions to survive.

Ms McBurnie and her mother, Carol, are now encouraging people to give blood and to know their own blood type.

BBC Scotland's Huw Williams reports.
