First Minister’s Questions had to be put on hold earlier today due to a protester who could be heard shouting from the audience gallery.
The person stood up as SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon was answering questions from opposition MSPs in the Scottish Parliament.
Presiding Officer Alison Johnstone abruptly stopped the meeting while security removed the protester out just after they shouted across the chamber.
Johnstone said: “I am suspending business for a moment.”
Stephanie Callaghan, an SNP MSP, was about to question Sturgeon over the Supreme Court ruling that said Holyrood could not organise a second independence referendum without Westminster’s approval.
It remains unclear what the protest was about, however the protester was overheard saying something was “completely unacceptable”.
