Police Scotland handed out £350,000 over three years as compensation for road accidents involving officers, a BBC investigation has found.

Since 2013, payouts have been made for a range of incidents, including where police vehicles hit a pedestrian, cyclists, parked cars, and walls.

Motor liability claims accounted for more than half of the total £633,035.
