Nicole Sturgeon says leaving the EU will trigger a second independence referendum

Nicola Sturgeon has said that voting to leave the EU would be one of the triggers for a second independence referendum.

The SNP leader and Scottish First Minister said that Scotland would be better off as an "independent" member of the EU and that "it is better for us in all circumstances to stay in".

It costs £55m to be a member of the EU and £30m a day to keep Scotland in the UK. If Nicola Sturgeon is hoping to influence the vote in England with the threat of another Scottish independence referendum she's going to be disappointed!
