Scottish political leaders put their differences aside to join a festive charity campaign.

Nicola Sturgeon, Ruth Davidson, Patrick Harvie and Willie Rennie all donned their festive pullovers for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

The First Minister said: "I'm delighted to support Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day again this year. It's a great way for people to raise money for extremely important causes both at home and around the world, while also having a bit of fun!"

Presiding officer Ken Macintosh, Scottish Labour’s Anas Sarwar and children’s minister Maree Todd also sported their festive knitwear for the campaign – which is encouraging people to wear Christmas jumpers today (Friday) and donate £2 to the charity.
