The First Minister of Scotland announces a second referendum on independence

The First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon, intends to seek approval from the Scottish Parliament for a new referendum on independence, CNN reported. The referendum had to be held between late 2018 - early 2019, Sturgeon said.

The First Minister stressed that Britain is heading for a "hard Brexit", and the inhabitants of Scotland deserve a choice whether to stay in the EU.

The first referendum on the independence of Scotland was held in September 2014. 55% of the inhabitants of Scotland voted then to stay in the UK.
