Speaking to BBC Scotland's political editor Brian Taylor, Ms Dugdale said: "I have thought long and hard about this, I care deeply about the Labour Party, I love it and I have spent my adult life serving it in a number of different capacities.

"I have come to the conclusion that the best thing for it - the Labour Party - this precious, precious thing that has done so much good for this country, and for me, is to pass that baton on."
