Campaigners are presenting a petition to the Scottish parliament today in a bid to prevent a set of historic Galloway treasures being taken away to Edinburgh.

Campaigners say the Galloway Viking Hoard treasure, which has been in the region for over a thousand years and was found by metal detectorists in 2014 should be kept at a gallery at Kirkcudbright.
