Scottish first minister launches 'new conversation' on independence

Scotland's first minister Nicola Sturgeon on Friday launched a "new conversation" on independence, in order for Scotland to "control its own destiny". 

Pointing to polls taken after Brexit which show support for independence had increased since the 2014 referendum, Ms Sturgeon said "and while I take nothing for granted, I suspect support for independence will be even higher if it becomes clear that it is the best, or the only way to protect our interests."
