Apology over Tory 'pigs' jibe.
But Telford MP David Wright insisted that his message must have been tampered with after he sent it out, saying he would not have used offensive language.
A message went out on the Telford MP's Twitter feed, reading: "ive never voted tory because you can put lipstick on a scum-sucking pig, but it's still a scum-sucking pig. And cos they would ruin Britain."
In a later message, Mr Wright said: "Fair does, apology in the ether."
