Johnson resignation: Widespread sense of relief - Sturgeon

Nicola Sturgeon has said there will be a "widespread sense of relief" after it emerged Boris Johnson was preparing to stand down.

The prime minister is to resign as party leader after losing the support of his ministers and MPs in a day which saw more than 50 resignations.

Mr Johnson hopes to continue as prime minister until the party conference in October.

But Scotland's first minister has questioned if this is sustainable.
