Resignations of two senior figures in the Scottish National Party (SNP) have caused chaos during the ongoing leadership contest to replace Nicola Sturgeon.
Peter Murrell resigned as the party's chief executive following a row over membership numbers; media chief Murray Foote resigned shortly before him.
Reports have suggested a bias towards one of the candidates, who was reportedly Sturgeon's preferred successor.
Police are also investigating allegations of £600k (€680k) of party money misused on Murrell's watch.
All candidates vying for the SNP leadership have pledged to reform its operations.
The SNP leadership contest has been thrown into turmoil after the resignations of Peter Murrell and media chief Murray Foote.
Murrell, who is Sturgeon's husband, resigned from his role as chief executive following a row over the party's membership numbers.
The resignations come amid reports of bias towards Sturgeon's preferred successor and ongoing police investigations into the alleged misuse of £600,000 of party money under Murrell's watch.
All three candidates have pledged to reform the party's operations.
Kate Forbes has said that decisions need to be taken by "a big team" rather than by "too few people" while Humza Yousaf has called for more transparency and openness.
Ash Regan has highlighted the need for more discussion about the independence push.
The Independent suggests Murrell quitting may not help the outgoing First Minister too much while Euronews suggests Sturgeon's successor has already been decided.
The BBC reports that SNP members want to know the party is democratic.
