Scottish minister resigns over huge iPad bill

# Scotland’s Health secretary, Michael Matheson, has resigned over a scandal involving his iPad bill of almost 260-thousand-rand. He took the device with him on a family holiday to Morocco late in 2022, and racked up the huge amount in roaming charges. Matheson paid the money back after initially claiming he did constituency work during the trip, while it later emerged his sons used the iPad to watch soccer. An investigation was launched in November last year, but the findings are still outstanding.
