FINANCE Secretary John Swinney met this week with some of the young people helping to improve one of Scotland’s main cycle routes near Uddingston.

The trainees are strimming, tree thinning and pruning to help make the access route a more open and attractive place to use as part of the Forestry Commission employment programmes.

Sustrans National Route 75 of the National Cycle Network path is also part of the Clyde Walkway.

When the young people complete their training they will have qualifications in health and safety, tool operation and other industry related practices that may help into work.
