Nicola Sturgeon: 'UK government must act to boost Scottish economy'

The Scottish government has announced £100m in new funding to create additional support for job creation.

Nicola Sturgeon said the money would help businesses deal with economic uncertainty following the June vote to leave the European Union.

The first minister also called on the UK government to act to boost the Scottish economy and give guarantees on funding.

Speaking to BBC Scotland's political correspondent Glenn Campbell, she said the £400m of structural funding is in the balance until Holyrood has a clearer idea of what economic stimulus will come from Westminster.
