Callaghan Amy MP.jpg 3By Democrat reporter

Amy Callaghan, the MP for East Dunbartonshire, has undergone neurosurgery after suffering a brain haemorrhage.

The SNP MP, who beat then Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson in December,  collapsed at her home last Wednesday.

A statement from her office said the 28-year-old was in a stable condition and was “now beginning the process of recovery”.

It added that Ms Callaghan’s collapse was “related to a previously manageable medical condition”.

She has previously spoken about being diagnosed with melanoma aged 19, but has been cancer-free for six years.

Ms Callaghan is said to be in good spirits and able to communicate well with her family.

Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon tweeted her support for the MP, sending her “lots of love and strength”.
