We told how footage showed police officers and a forensics tent outside of the Sturgeon-Murrell home in Uddingston, South Lanarkshire.

Officers were photographed standing outside of a police cordon at the residential property, with a blue and white tent covering the front entrance.

A spokesperson for the SNP said: “Clearly it would not be appropriate to comment on any live police investigation but the SNP have been co-operating fully with this investigation and will continue to do so.

“At its meeting on Saturday, the governing body of the SNP, the NEC, agreed to a review of governance and transparency – that will be taken forward in the coming weeks.”
