People in Dumbarton and the Vale are being given the chance to put questions directly to people in power in the new series of BBC Scotland's 'Debate Night' programme.

The show gives members of the public the chance to quiz Scotland’s decision makers and talk about the experiences they have faced during the lockdown.

Presenter Stephen Jardine said: “Debate Night is the only place where people are regularly able to put their questions and experiences directly to Scotland's policymakers in their own words.

"Despite the restrictions in place we are determined to continue giving people the opportunity to question those in charge."
