Library bay prototype to help art school restoration

Restoration work to the Mackintosh library at Glasgow School of Art, which was destroyed by fire nearly three years ago, has taken a step forward with the appointment of an Edinburgh-based specialist carpentry company.

Craftsmen from Laurence McIntosh have begun building a prototype of the library bay to test materials and construction techniques.

BBC Scotland's Aileen Clarke reports on how the project has set about restoring the decorative heart of the building.
