A Scottish Government minister visited Cumbernauld to meet students who are receiving valuable training thanks to cash seized from crooks.

Justice secretary Kenny MacAskill met the students at ScottishPower’s training headquarters in Dealain House on Monday.

The students, who attend Glasgow’s Cardonald College, are taking part in a PowerSkills course, which was created through the CashBack for Communities Scheme which takes money seized through the Proceeds of Crime Act to benefit young people across Scotland.
