A German couple who have decided to leave Scotland as a result of the Brexit vote have been invited to meet Nicola Sturgeon at an event for EU nationals in Edinburgh.

Thomas and Elke Westen, from Kirkcaldy, told the BBC they no longer felt welcome in the UK.

They were contacted by Ms Sturgeon's office after their story was broadcast.

The Scottish government wants as many as possible of the 173,000 EU citizens living in Scotland to remain in the country.
