Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale is in a relationship with an SNP MSP, it has been revealed.


Ms Dugdale has been dating Jenny Gilruth, the MSP for Mid Fife and Glenrothes, for several months, her party said.

In a statement, the pair thanked well-wishers but asked for their privacy to be respected.

"We don't consider this to be 'news' - but we appreciate others might and we want to go about our daily lives normally," they said.

"We would like to thank our friends, family and colleagues for their kindness over the past few months and for their love and support.

"We'd politely ask that our privacy is respected because while we are both politicians, we are also human beings - in a new relationship, which we cherish."

SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon congratulated her rival, as did SNP MP Stewart McDonald.
