Nicola Sturgeon: Indyref 'beacon of democratic debate'

The independence referendum in Scotland is a lesson for other parts of the world where people wish to democratically decide the future of their nation, says the First Minister.

Nicola Sturgeon was speaking during an official trip to Hong Kong when she was asked if there were any parallel lessons for the country's relationship with China.

Ms Sturgeon referred to the process as "the beacon of peaceful democratic debate" which had reawakened interest in politics and strengthened Scotland.
