SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon during the launch of the SNP Manifesto
Nicola Sturgeon has launched the SNP election manifesto with a pledge to “escape Brexit and put Scotland’s future in Scotland’s hands”.
The manifesto says that the SNP winning the most seats in Scotland would send a “clear” message that an independence referendum must be held next year.
Ms Sturgeon in Glasgow said the country faced a “fundamental question” over who should decide its future.
Britons go the polls in a general election on 12 December.
