AN MP has said she is 'blessed to be alive' after marking the one year anniversary of her brain haemorrhage. 

East Dunbartonshire MP Amy Callaghan took to social media to thank everyone who has supported her recovery over the last year.

She said: "Today marks one year since my brain haemorrhage.

"Blessed to be alive. Grateful for the support. Determined for the future.

"My love to all - family, friends and the people of East Dunbartonshire - we've stuck together during the toughest of years."

Ms Callaghan was found collapsed on the floor last year and was rushed to hospital to undergo emergency neurosurgery. 

She made her return to parliament in March following her recovery where she thanked NHS staff.
