Nicola Sturgeon has taken part in the first newly extended First Minister's Questions at the Scottish Parliament.

Last week MSPs voted to extend the Thursday Q&A from 30 to 45 minutes.

Ms Sturgeon had called for a longer session, as well as more chances for committees to quiz her, following her election as first minister.

The longer sessions will be tried out until the summer recess and then evaluated by the presiding officer.
