Prime Minister Theresa May will travel to Scotland for talks with Nicola Sturgeon on Friday.

The meeting in Edinburgh is expected to focus on Brexit negotiations and Scotland's place in the EU after 62% of voters in Scotland backed a remain vote in last month's referendum.

The First Minister told STV: "We'll meet here in Edinburgh tomorrow morning and I hope that it will be a constructive discussion. It's no secret to anybody that Theresa May and I hold very different political views and we've got perhaps different views on what should happen now in terms of the Brexit vote."
