BBC Question Time is coming to Edinburgh this week – here’s how to put your question to the panel

Question Time will be held in Edinburgh this week, with the capital hosting the only Scottish date for the BBC’s flagship political show.

Fiona Bruce will return to host with a virtual audience quizzing the panel on a variety of political issues, and has appealed for viewers to put questions to the panel via video link from home.
