Nicola Sturgeon gave phone used during Covid to relative

The evidence, submitted by Ms Sturgeon in November last year, stated she used a personal iPad to access Scottish government email, but this was no longer in use.

The new phone she has used since December 2020 is still in her possession, she added.

Ms Sturgeon also said she had received advice from Scottish government officials that WhatsApp messages removed from a device could only be retrieved for a period of up to 30 days.

However, she said any “matters of substance” relating to the pandemic response would have been “communicated through the formal Scottish government system”.
