Protester throws pie at Scotland's only Tory MP
SCOTLAND Office minister David Mundell was hit by a pie as he arrived at a private reception yesterday.
Mr Mundell (pictured), the only Tory MP in Scotland, was in St Andrews, Fife, to attend a private event.
He was met by a group protesting against cuts to education.
It was not known who threw the pastry, understood to a be a shop-bought keylime pie.
Conservative councillor Dorothea Morrison, who was also attending the reception at St Andrews, told the Courier newspaper: "He just took it calmly and said he wasn't going to press any charges."
A Tory spokesman said Mr Mundell, MP for Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale, was at the reception in a party capacity and would not be taking further action.
