Scotland’s former first minister Alex Salmond has made accusations of a “malicious and concerted” attempt to remove him from public life.

The claim appears in papers published ahead of his appearance at a Holyrood inquiry into the Scottish government’s mishandling of complaints against him.

Mr Salmond names people he alleges to have been part of moves to damage his reputation.

Nicola Sturgeon insisted any accusation of a conspiracy was “not true”.

She told the BBC that there was “not a shred of evidence” that Mr Salmond could show to prove his claims.
