Nicola Sturgeon has confirmed she will ask for permission to hold a second referendum on Scottish independence.

Sturgeon said she wanted a vote to be held between the autumn of 2018 and the spring of the following year.

That would coincide with the expected conclusion of the UK's Brexit negotiations.

The Scottish first minister said the move was needed to protect Scottish interests in the wake of the UK voting to leave the EU.

Prime Minister Theresa May has so far avoided saying whether or not she would grant permission.
