Scottish voters should have the right to choose between the "significant and profound" change that Brexit will cause and independence, Nicola Sturgeon has said.
The First Minister was reopening a debate at Holyrood over her calls for a second independence referendum.
Scotland, like the rest of the UK, stands at a crossroads.
The debate in Holyrood is currently underway, and SNP and Green MSPs are expected to join forces to vote for a second independence referendum.
The proposal for a second referendum would then be considered by the UK government in Westminster, and Prime Minister Theresa May has already said she would not agree to a referendum before Brexit.
