Sturgeon insists SNP will not cause 'chaos' in Parliament

SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon has rejected claims that her party will cause 'chaos' in Westminster if it refused to back the budget plans put forward by a minority Labour government.

Speaking on the campaign trail, Ms Sturgeon admitted the SNP would block a Labour budget if it included more austerity measures but she said this "would not bring down a minority government" but would force it to rethink.
