Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon told the coronavirus press briefing that she has spoken directly to Margaret Ferrier and made it clear to the SNP MP that she should resign. Ms Sturgeon added that she was powerless to sack Ms Ferrier despite her clearly breaking the law by travelling on a train whilst aware that she had COVID-19.
