Second Scotland Referendum "Highly Likely" First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says it is "democratically unacceptable" Scotland could be taken out of the EU "against its will
Scotland"s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said the Holyrood will begin preparing legislation for another referendum.
At a news conference in Edinburgh following the historic decision by the UK to leave the European Union, Ms Sturgeon said it was "democratically unacceptable" that Scotland would be taken out of the EU "against its will".
Scotland overwhelmingly voted to remain within the EU in Thursday"s referendum, with only 38% voting to leave.
Ms Sturgeon declared that the result meant there had been a "significant and material change in the circumstances in which Scotland voted against independence" in 2014.
