She travelled to Westminster by train on Monday, saying she felt "much better". That evening she was informed that she had tested positive for coronavirus. 

Police Scotland have now said they are "aware" of the coronavirus rule breach and that they are currently "liaising" with colleagues in the Metropolitan Police Service. 

A spokeswoman said: “We are aware of the circumstances and are liaising with our colleagues in the Metropolitan Police Service.”

In the meantime, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has blasted MP Margaret Ferrier's moves as "utterly indefensible".

Taking to social media, the First Minister wrote: This is utterly indefensible.

"It’s hard to express just how angry I feel on behalf of people across the country making hard sacrifices every day to help beat COVID.

"The rules apply to everyone and they’re in place to keep people safe. Ian Blackford is right to suspend the whip."
