Sturgeon asks for review into 'gagged worker' case

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has asked the Scottish government's permanent secretary to review the case of a civil servant allegedly taped to a chair and gagged by male colleagues.

In answering a question on the case from Labour MSP Rhoda Grant, Ms Sturgeon said: "I can tell the chamber I have this morning asked the permanent secretary of the Scottish government to conduct a full review of the circumstances of this case, a review of the actions already taken and a review of the actions proposed to be taken and to report to me personally on her conclusions as soon as possible."
