What did we learn about Nicola Sturgeon's WhatsApp messages at the COVID inquiry?

Former first minister Nicola Sturgeon has told the COVID inquiry: "I was the first minister when the pandemic struck and part of me wishes I hadn't been."

She denied she used platforms including WhatsApp to have serious policy discussions and said she deleted messages but relevant information was all on public records.

On this Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson goes through her answers with Scotland correspondent Connor Gillies. They also talk about whether the pandemic claims have damaged her leadership legacy.

Plus, with claims of key Tory cabinet names being part of an "Evil Plotters" WhatsApp group this week - our deputy political editor Sam Coates explores the impact WhatsApp messages are having on politics.
