BID FOR SECOND SCOTS INDEPENDENCE VOTE
Nicola Sturgeon has said she will request UK Government consent for another referendum on Scottish independence before the end of the year.
Scotland's First Minister revealed she will ask Downing Street for a Section 30 order "over the next matter of weeks" as she presses ahead with plans to hold a vote in the latter half of 2020.
The Referendums (Scotland) Bill, which makes provision for such a vote, was produced by the Scottish Government in May.
