Scottish swimmers ready for India

Athletes eager to compete despite Commonwealth Games in New Delhi being hit by concerns over facilities.

    Scotland has delayed its decision on whether to attend the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi early next month amid concerns about accommodation for the athletes.
