An MP suffering from coronavirus symptoms visited a gift shop and a beauty salon on the same day she took a Covid test which eventually came back positive.
Margaret Ferrier, who was suspended from the SNP after making a 400-mile trip to Westminster before getting her results, also posted on Twitter suggesting she visited a leisure centre on the same day.
The Vanilla Salon and Sweet P Gift Boutique in Ms Ferrier’s constituency town of Rutherglen, near Glasgow, condemned the MP’s actions as ‘irresponsible’ and have been forced to reassure customers their shops are still safe to visit.
In photographs posted last Saturday, Ms Ferrier can be seen posing with socially-distanced staff outside the South Lanarkshire Eastfield Lifestyle centre and next to an indoor swimming pool.
