Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has insisted the SNP is not "changing its tune" on Scottish independence after her predecessor Alex Salmond said their landslide election victory had brought it closer.
Speaking to the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, Ms Sturgeon said her promise during the campaign that the vote was not about independence still stood and said she was determined to unite the country.
"As First Minister, as leader of the SNP, I've got a responsibility to try to unite Scotland and I'm determined that I do that."
Ms Sturgeon also said there are "big issues" to discuss with David Cameron in the wake of the SNP's general election success.
"Scotland voted overwhelming for change and I think that has to be heeded", she added.
Nicola Sturgeon has joined newly-elected SNP MPs today as the party marks its historic landslide general election victory in Scotland.
Nicola Sturgeon says it is time for "an alternative approach" as the SNP's newly-elected MPs prepare for a photocall to celebrate their win.
The SNP won six seats back in 2010 but Alex Salmond said their overwhelming victory five years on shows the 'Scottish lion has roared'.
