New Glasgow MSP sworn in at Holyrood ceremony
Anne McLaughlin takes oath of office at Scottish Parliament.
Scotland's newest MSP has been formally sworn in at Holyrood.
Anne McLaughlin, 42, took her oath of office in Parliament before the morning session got under way.
Ms McLaughlin, the highest-ranking SNP Glasgow list candidate not to get elected in 2007, replaces 68-year-old Bashir Ahmad who died last Friday.
She said before the ceremony: "As someone who is passionate about Scotland and passionate about Glasgow it will be an honour to serve as MSP for the people of this city.
"Having lived in Glasgow for over 20 years I know what a vibrant place the city can be but I also know the challenges we face in Glasgow and in Scotland and I will work with my colleagues at all levels to meet those challenges."
Ms McLaughlin paid tribute to Mr Ahmad as a "great colleague and an excellent MSP" earlier this week.
As well as being a list candidate, Ms McLaughlin stood for Glasgow Springburn in the 2007 election.
