MP traveled from Scotland to London and back again with corona!

An SNP MP sparked a major alert in the heart of Westminster after admitting travelling more than 400 miles from her Scottish constituency to speak in Parliament while suffering from corona.

Margaret Ferrier apologised for leaving her Rutherglen and Hamilton West constituency south of Glasgow to attend the Commons in London.

She knew she was experiencing symptoms and was awaiting the results of a weekend test at the time she made the journey by train.

She was suspended by the SNP tonight as MPs condemned her behaviour as reckless and putting public health at risk.
