A teacher and Tory councillor who called Nicola Sturgeon 'Wee Jimmy Krankie' and a 'drooling hag' has agreed to be removed from the teaching register.

Kathleen Leslie, 41, wrote a series of 'offensive' and 'inappropriate' tweets about Nicola Sturgeon before the Scottish independence referendum in 2014.

In November 2013, while also tagging Sturgeon into the tweets, the former support teacher tweeted: 'Wee Jimmy Krankie is a drooling hag. She's a walking horror show.'

Another earlier tweet in July 2013, read: 'That wee fish wife was there?! At taxpayer expense no doubt. Feel sorry for poor bugger sat next to her grim face.'

Leslie, from Dalgety Bay, Fife, also called a lottery-winning family, the Weirs, 'uneducated fat f*****s' after they donated millions to the Yes campaign.

At the time, Leslie was blasted by opposition parties for the tweets and 'reminded of her responsibilities' by bosses in the Scottish Conservative party.

Before being elected in May, Leslie attracted a number of tweets criticising her ability to run as councillor.

One person wrote: 'You are an unfit person to serve as a councillor.. Even more unfit to be a teacher.'

Another critic tweeted Fife Council: 'You must be so proud of your teacher' while tagging Leslie's profile name.

Now the General Teaching Council for Scotland has revealed that she has agreed to remove herself from the register in July following an investigation into 'offensive comments'.
