Brexit: Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon meets top EU leaders today

Nicola Sturgeon has secured a meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, as she embarks on a bid to keep Scotland in the European Union. The First Minister had already confirmed talks with European Parliament President Martin Schulz and Liberal group leader and former Belgian prime minister Guy Verhofstadt, the latter of whom said yesterday that there was ‘no big obstacle’ to an independent Scotland joining the EU.
