Anas Sarwar wins Scottish Labour leadership race

News Correspondent

Anas Sarwar has become the new leader of the Scottish Labour party – after defeating Monica Lennon in the leadership contest.

Mr Sarwar, who’s an MSP for Glasgow, described it as the “greatest honour of my life”.

He’s the first person from an ethnic minority background to lead a UK political party – and he faces a huge challenge to boost Labour’s flagging fortunes in Scotland.
