Lothian Green candidate determined to continue campaign despite breaking arm
Lothian Green candidate Alison Johnstone is out and about campaigning despite breaking her arm in a fall from her bike.
She says she is recovering but finding the restrictions on her election activities frustrating.
"I came off my bike at the bottom of the Pentlands going round a reservoir," she said. "I've cycled all my life and this is my first accident but it had to be in the middle of an election campaign.”
"It's going to take a bit of time to heal. I'm typing with one hand. But I'm determined to get out and secure each and every vote I can."
Ms Johnstone, an MSP since 2011 is the Greens' number one candidate on the Lothian list and is also standing in Edinburgh Central, one of Scotland’s most closely-fought seats.
Former Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson won it last time with a majority of 610 over the SNP but she is not standing again.
