A Glasgow politician whose constituency office was firebombed last year has told of further threats to her safety. 

Conservative MSP Annie Wells claimed she told not to set foot in Springburn again or she ‘would be be set alight’ in an online threat five days ago. 

She also took a swipe at a parliamentary magazine which has a picture of a Conservative politician on its cover, with the face obscured, whose trousers appear to be on fire. 

Glasgow Times:

In May, last year, the politician's office was firebombed days after she received online threats.

The MSP was left "shaken" after the attack on her constituency base on Maryhill Road, Glasgow.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "We received a report around 12.20pm on Thursday, 24 September, of an online threat being sent to a Member of the Scottish Parliament. Enquiries are ongoing."
