BBC Scotland: 'Mock funeral' is held over cuts - 12:50pm update

Two trade unions have staged a mock funeral at the Scottish Parliament to protest against the loss of voluntary sector jobs and services.
Members of Unite and Unison gathered outside Holyrood dressed in black and accompanied by a horse-drawn hearse.
The groups will later be joined by care charities in urging MSPs on the petitions committee to intervene.

They want the Scottish Government to give support to a "fair funding agreement".
