Margaret Ferrier arrested over alleged COVID-19 rule breach
Ms Ferrier was arrested and charged with culpable and reckless conduct over her journey between Scotland and the House of Commons after taking a Covid test.
A police statement read: “We can confirm that officers today arrested and charged a 60-year-old woman in connection with alleged culpable and reckless conduct.
“This follows a thorough investigation by Police Scotland into an alleged breach of coronavirus regulations between 26 and 29 September 2020.
“A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal and we are unable to comment further.”
The whip was removed after last year it emerged that she had made a trip from Glasgow to the Commons.
Ms Ferrier had made the trip while waiting for the results of a coronavirus test which she had taken on September 28.
In a statement released on October 1, Ms Ferrier confirmed she received a positive test result after travelling to London.
