Nicola Sturgeon brings election campaign to Lockerbie

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon stopped off in Lockerbie on the latest leg of her campaign trail.

The SNP leader warned that rural Scotland is among the areas most at risk from Boris Johnson's Brexit deal.

On her visit she told ITV Border: "Due to farming and the importance of export industries, there is every likelihood that Brexit will hit these kind of areas hard.

"There's also the case that we depend on migrant labour - people coming in to make a contribution to our economy here. We don't want to lose that."

Ms Sturgeon says the south of Scotland is hugely important to economic well-being of the country.

She said: "It's an integral part of the country in every other respect as well. We recognize that by the establishment of the south of Scotland enterprise agency to really make sure that we are focusing on the actions that are required to grow the south of Scotland economy and to see it prosper."

She took part in the ITV Leaders' debate on Sunday night and said she wants to lock the Prime Minister out of Downing Street.

"To build a better future we need to stop Boris Johnson and the Tories and in Scotland that means voting SNP," Ms Sturgeon said.

Conservative leader and Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in at the Scottish Torie manifesto launch that he would not support indyref2 within his first two years in office if he takes over as prime minister.
