WEST Fifers are being invited to be part of a studio audience for a BBC political discussion show.

Debate night will be hosted in Dunfermline on Wednesday evening and members of the local community are being invited to have their day.

Presenter Stephen Jardine said the show is the only television programme of its kind in Scotland.

"It gives you the opportunity to put your questions to the country’s decision-makers and public figures," he explained.

Dunfermline Press:

"We want people from all walks of life. You might be a parent, a carer or a student? Perhaps you run a business or are a frontline worker? Retired, self-employed, unemployed or just starting out in the workplace – we need you.

"It’s your questions, stories, experiences and opinions that lead our discussion - so we couldn’t do it without you!"
