The daughter of a journalist interrupted a question being asked to Scotland’s First Minister at the daily coronavirus briefing.
Chris Musson, the political editor of the Scottish Sun, was asking Nicola Sturgeon about possibility of mothers being forced out of work due to childcare responsibilities during the pandemic.
During his question, the journalist’s five-year-old daughter could be seen over his right shoulder.
The intervention raised a smile from the First Minister, which turned to a laugh when the youngster switched sides and temporarily managed to get between her father and the camera.
Ms Sturgeon said: “Chris, I think you should let the other person in the room there ask a question.”
She added: “Can I say that you are, as a man, taking your fair share of the childcare so well done for that.”
The First Minister also made an attempt to greet the intruder, but was met with silence, before thanking the journalist and his “able helper” for the question.
