Nicola Sturgeon is in custody after being arrested in connection with the investigation into the Scottish National Party’s finances.
Scotland’s former first minister and ex-SNP leader is currently being questioned by detectives.
The long-running inquiry is linked to the spending of around £600,000 raised by supporters to be earmarked for Scottish independence campaigning.
It is understood there have been complaints the ringfenced cash may have been used improperly by being spent elsewhere.
