Father and daughter MSP duo 'want no embarrassing dad stuff'

A father and daughter have begun their first day at work as MSPs in different parties.

John Finnie was elected as Scottish Green Party MSP, in the Highlands and Islands, while his daughter Ruth Maguire was elected for the SNP in Cunninghame South.

Asked whether they might fall out, John said politics would be off limits at home while Ruth quipped that she had "asked him not to do any embarrassing dad stuff".

The duo are the first family members to represent different parties in the Scottish Parliament.
