SNP MP Amy Callaghan is recovering in hospital after a brain haemorrhage, it has been announced.

The East Dunbartonshire representative was admitted for emergency neurosurgery after being found collapsed at home.

In a statement released by the MP’s office, the brain haemorrhage is said to be “related to a previously manageable medical condition”.

Callaghan is in a stable condition after the surgery.

The statement reads: “Amy was able to successfully pull through the operation and is now stable in hospital. She wishes to put on record her enormous love and gratitude to all involved in her care.

“Amy is in good spirits and able to communicate with family. She has been overwhelmed with the messages of support and kindness which are a huge source of encouragement. She has made great progress thus far but is under no illusion of the seriousness of her condition and the rehabilitations that will follow.

“As she always has done throughout her life, she will continue to fight. She is determined to overcome what barriers, if any, may now arise as a result of this incident. She wants to make clear that her constituency work will continue: her office is still open for all those who require help and support.

“There will be a period of rest and recover. Whilst this is ongoing, we ask that you respect her and her family’s safety and privacy.”

Callaghan first became an MP in December after ousting then-LibDem leader Jo Swinson.

"There is absolutely no doubt that Amy will come back stronger, fitter and more determined than ever to continue in that role and serve, to the best of her ability, the people of her constituency."
