Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Home&abroad -

NI­COLA Stur­geon has said she will re­fer her­self to in­de­pen­dent ad­vis­ers on the min­is­te­rial code over meet­ings with Alex Sal­mond.

The first min­is­ter said she met Mr Sal­mond three times and spoke to him by phone twice af­ter two women made sex­ual ha­rass­ment claims about him to the gov­ern­ment last Jan­uary.

On Tues­day, the gov­ern­ment’s han­dling of the al­le­ga­tions was ruled un­law­ful.

Ms Stur­geon said: “It is in the in­ter­ests of the women who have com­plained that the po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tions are al­lowed to con­tinue with­out any risk of prej­u­dice.”
