SNP calls on PM to reach Brexit agreement with Scotland

The SNP's Westminster leader has called for an agreement with the devolved nations of the UK before the government triggers Article 50 to leave the European Union.

At Prime Minister's Questions, Angus Robertson added that Scotland would hold an independence referendum if the UK government did not secure single market membership.

Prime Minister Theresa May said "it was very clear" that an independent Scotland would not be in the EU and the nations of the UK should work together.
