Sturgeon urged to call a second Scottish independence referendum

Nicola Sturgeon - could she call another independence referendum?

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has welcomed Scotland's "unequivocal" vote to stay in Europe.

But despite the vote, the country still faces the prospect of leaving the EU, after the Leave campaign edged ahead across the UK.

The result means Ms Sturgeon will now come under pressure to call a second independence referendum.

She said the vote made it clear that "the people of Scotland see their future as part of the European Union."

"We await the final UK-wide result, but Scotland has spoken - and spoken decisively."
