East Dunbartonshire MP Amy Callaghan, who spent four months in hospital after suffering a brain haemorrhage, has made a virtual return to the House of Commons this week.

The SNP MP had to undergo two life-saving surgeries after collapsing at home in June last year.

In a tweet marking her online return to parliament, she posted: "Not even that long ago, this felt so far off".
