Scotland's political parties have submitted their candidate lists for European Parliament elections in May - should the UK end up holding them.

Voting has been fixed for Thursday 23 May, but could still be called off if a Brexit deal is agreed before then.

Scotland operates as a single nation-wide constituency for the election, and is represented by six MEPs.

Parties put forward lists of candidates who are then elected on a proportional representation basis from votes cast.
