A Scotland Office minister has been hit by a pie as he arrived at a private reception.

David Mundell, 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 is not known who threw the pastry, which is 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.
