Boris Johnson was last night blasted as beyond reckless for visiting a vaccine production firm in Scotland despite a  coronavirus  outbreak at the site.
The  Prime Minister  went to Valneva, in Livingston, last Thursday during a  controversial trip north.
But the Daily Record can reveal  the visit  came just 24 hours after a public health probe at the site, which uncovered 14 coronavirus cases about one in eight of the workforce.
Lothian Labour MSP Neil Findlay said it was absolutely extraordinary Johnson continued with his politically motivated PR visit despite the outbreak.
He added: This is beyond reckless and verges on being criminally irresponsible.

Sturgeon said restrictions are working as infection levels dip, but in a statement at the Scottish Parliament warned the pandemic is still not under enough control.
