A popular Scottish business received threats from nasty Nats after attending a Christmas market at Downing Street.

Clootie McToot owner Michelle Maddox was honoured to be in London for Small Business Saturday where she handed one of her delicious dumplings to Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

But she was then subject to abuse on social media for meeting the Tory leader.

While the majority of comments were supportive, others said they would no longer buy Clootie McToot products while others sent threats over private message.

Posting on Facebook as Clootie McToot, Michelle said: “I respect everyone’s right to the freedom of speech and have left everyone’s comments there to be seen regarding my small business post. However, would the individuals that are sending private, abusive and threatening messages PLEASE stop now. I don’t want to have to take them further.
