Ruth Davidson, the leader of the Scottish Conservative party, has announced her engagement with her long-term girlfriend.

Davidson is one of the only LGBTI people to ever lead a right-wing political party in the world.

She said on Twitter that she had been away for a few days because she had a very important question to ask her partner Jen Wilson.

The announcement has seen a flurry of congratulations for the happy couple.

A Scottish Conservative spokesman said: ‘Normally we wouldn’t comment on personal issues but everybody in the party will want to wish Ruth and Jen the very best.’
