Nicola Sturgeon will 'move forward' with indyref2 plans

Nicola Sturgeon has said a letter formally asking Prime Minister Theresa May for a Section 30 order to hold another independence referendum is about the pursuit of self-determination.

The first minister said the UK government must respect the will of the Scottish Parliament after MSPs backed her bid for Scotland to have the choice of what path to follow in the wake of the Brexit vote.

Speaking to BBC Scotland's political editor Brian Taylor, she said she intends to inform Holyrood of the next steps should there be a refusal to do so.
