Nicola Sturgeon says the Scottish Government is committed to regeneration

Scotland's Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has been in Stranraer for talks about the regeneration of the town.

She was also there for the signing of a Memorandum of understanding between the Council and Stena over the future development of the old ferry terminal.

Nicola Sturgeon said investment in to the town's marina and west pier was a fraction of what was being planned.

"The £2.4 million being spent in the west pier is a fraction of the investment that's going in to making sure Stranraer has the modern up to date infrastructure, digital infrastructure that it needs to thrive as a town in the future. So this is an ongoing process"

– Deputy First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon
