Nicola Sturgeon has said she will consider action against Natalie McGarry, the SNP MP at the centre of an inquiry into approximately £30,000 that has gone missing from a pro-independence campaign group.

But the First Minister said she needed more information about the case involving the high profile Women for Independence organisation.

Women for Independence called in police after staff raised concerns about apparently missing funds.

Ms McGarry, one of the founding members of the group, is prepared to talk to police about the case, according to her solicitor Aamer Anwer, but denies any wrongdoing.

Scottish Labour has called for Glasgow East MP Ms McGarry to be suspended, and claimed the probe could "cast doubt" on her election.

Ms Sturgeon was asked about the case during a rural summit held in East Lothian.
