The Scottish Conservatives have unveiled their version of the party's new tree logo.

It is bigger than the UK party version, slightly darker - and the trunk does not lean as far to the right.

The Scottish logo was circulated without comment and the party declined to discuss whether the differences had any political significance.

When the logo was unveiled in England, one activist said it looked like it had been scribbled by a three-year-old.

Designers were paid 40,000 to replace the traditional torch emblem with an image representing "strength, endurance, renewal and growth".

Former Tory minister Lord Tebbit said it looked like "a bunch of broccoli".

An SNP spokesman said: "Scottish voters won't be fooled by a slightly less right leaning tree."
