Former SNP leader: Sturgeon should declare independence if UK votes to leave EU without Scots' backing

Written by

Nicola Sturgeon should declare independence if the UK votes to leave the EU but Scots back staying in, a former SNP leader has said.

Gordon Wilson said the First Minister would have a mandate to break up the UK if she announced her plan in advance.

David Cameron has promised an in-out referendum on the UK's membership of the EU if the Conservatives are in a position to deliver one after the General Election.
