BBC Debate Night Scotland was held in Stirling this week at the Tolbooth.

The weekly programme tours Scotland with a varying panel of politicians and political influencers.

The panel took on four questions submitted by the audience in advance of the event.

The questions asked at the Stirling event regarded Gaza, firework regulations, anti-social behaviour in town centres and MPs switching parties.

The Stirling panel featured five members: Alyn Smith MP, SNP representative for Stirling; Meghan Gallacher MSP, deputy leader of the Scottish Conservatives; Paul O’Kane MSP, Scottish Labour; Paul McNamee, UK Editor of The Big Issue and Kezia Dugdale, former Scottish Labour leader and director of the John Smith Centre.

The show had a very lively crowd that did verge on hostile when the question of policing and anti-social behaviour was brought up.

Tickets for Debate Night are available to anyone over 18 for free on the BBC website.
