The SNP  formally launched its campaign for the Glenrothes by-election today.

The party’s candidate for the November 6 ballot is Peter Grant, the leader of SNP-controlled Fife council.

He will call for the political focus to switch from bailing out the banks to easing ever-tighter family budgets.

First Minister Alex Salmond joined Mr Grant on a visit to a local paper maker which is leading the way in adopting renewable energy.
