An SNP official is under investigation after claims he made a threatening phone call to a new business owner.
Ian McPherson, a staffer for Westminster MP Allan Dorans, admitted making a “terrible error of judgement” in his call to Ayr painter Craig Hainey.
It followed the opening of Mr Hainey’s new business in Ayr’s North Harbour, to which he had invited Tory MSP Sharon Dowey.
He then claims to have received a call from McPherson asking why Ayr MSP Siobhian Brown had not been asked along instead.
Mr Hainey, who has opened Pro Paints, claims McPherson warned him: “I hope this doesn’t affect your business”.
The SNP worker this week admitted making the call and said he had been “trying to clear up confusion between list MSPs and MSPs”.
