FM says 'unthinkable' not to include Holyrood in Brexit role

Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says it would be "unthinkable" not to properly consult Holyrood on the Brexit deal.

She told MSPs: "Despite the hints we got yesterday (from Theresa May) there is still no clear and emphatic acceptance on behalf of the UK government that the Repeal Bill would require the legislative consent of the parliament.

"It is unthinkable that anything else would be the case."
