Drugs minister Elena Whitham has resigned from the Scottish government for health reasons.

Ms Whitham was appointed to the post in March last year, after previously serving as minster for community safety.

Accepting her resignation, First Minister Humza Yousaf thanked her for her service and said that he greatly valued her efforts to tackle alcohol and drug-related deaths, particularly her work to take forward proposals for reviewing drug laws.
