A minister has been hit by a pie during protests against education cuts. Junior Scotland Office Minister David Mundell, Scotland's only Tory MP, was attacked with a lime key pie after being picketed in St. Andrews while visiting a Tory cheese and wine event. Mundell is not taking any legal action. Arriving at the incident Fife police held about 10 protesters for questioning, who were released without charge. A Tory spokesman said the meeting was a pre-election rally for Miles Briggs, the candidate for north east Fife in May's Scottish parliamentary election. He told the BBC: "David is unfazed, got cleaned up and got on with it. Incident closed." One of the anti-cuts protesters, Hassan Ahmed, said: "Someone had some sort of fruit pie and he approached Mundell and squashed it down on his head."
