The Scottish culture secretary has demanded an urgent meeting with Creative Scotland to discuss why an arts project involving real sex was given over £100,000 in funding.

Angus Robertson said he is “deeply concerned” about documents obtained by BBC Scotland News which show the original funding application made clear the project would involve real sex.

The funding body Creative Scotland axed support for the Rein project in March, claiming they had not realised that real sex would be a part of the event.

But Rein’s application acknowledged that development would involve “a sex scene with genital contact” involving three members of the cast.

Mr Robertson said he has requested an urgent meeting with Creative Scotland’s leadership to “discuss how confidence in the organisation can be restored”.

Director Leonie Rae Gasson secured a total of more than £110,000 of lottery money from the arts body and was asked to hand £76,196 back.
