THE Scottish National Party's tour bus visited Moray yesterday – with voters set to head to the polls in the Scottish Parliamentary Election tomorrow.

The SNP Bus Tour has been going around Scotland encouraging voters to use both their constituency and list vote to elect the SNP.

Yesterday it visited Elgin Cathedral before heading through to Strathisla Distillery in Keith.

SNP candidate for Moray Richard Lochhead explained the purpose of the bus tour.

He said: "One of the key messages of this campaign is that if you want to see an SNP government then it has to be both votes SNP.

"This is not a case of trying to vote for your favourite and second favourite party – if you want Nicola Sturgeon as First Minister then vote SNP with both votes.

"The bus was a great, visual way of highlighting this important message – given we are in the middle of a pandemic and can't have gatherings.

"It was encouraging to see people in Moray waving and tooting their horns in support as the bus went past."

Richard Lochhead (SNP) is attempting to retain his seat and is up against Tim Eagle (Conservative), Jo Kirby (Labour), Sheila Ritchie (Liberal Democrat) and Robert Stephenson (UKIP).
