Nicola Sturgeon warns of 'high price of voting Tory'

Nicola Sturgeon has warned that the poorest in society will pay the highest price for another Conservative government.

Addressing delegates at the STUC, in Aviemore, the first minister cautioned against the right-ward trajectory which she said the Conservative Party seems to have embarked upon.

Ms Sturgeon cited the bedroom tax, the two-child tax credit cap and the "shameful" rape clause which have all been introduced with a smaller Conservative majority.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn had earlier pledged that his party would make the country work for the many rather than the few in his address to conference.
