A campaign over high hedges gained coverage on STV after protesters demonstrated outside the Scottish Parliament.
Members of pressure group Scothedge congregated outside Holyrood to bring their message against “vegetation tyranny” to MSPs.
The coverage on the Scottish Television news told how the group wanted to see Scots law changed to protect those whose lives were blighted by overgrown foliage in their neighbours’ backyards.
The footage, which was later posted on the STV website, also told how the protest was timed to coincide with an approaching consultation deadline where the Scottish Government has asked the public their thoughts on the problem.
