Yousaf faces no-confidence vote as he fights for survival

Scotland’s first minister Humza Yousaf is battling for his political survival after a chaotic 24 hours which saw him end the SNP’s governing partnership with the Greens on Thursday.

This was followed a couple of hours later by the Scottish Conservatives putting forward a motion of no confidence in the first minister.

The motion was backed by Scottish Labour, the Scottish Lib Dems and, crucially, the Greens, who just 24 hours earlier were close cabinet colleagues.

It leaves Mr Yousaf potentially having to rely on Alex Salmond’s Alba Party, and their one MSP Ash Regan, to survive a no-confidence vote.

Swinney: I'll put pressure on Westminster over independence

John Swinney says if he were to be re-elected as Scottish First Minister, he would "intensify pressure" on Parliament over Scotland's bid for independence and accuses the Westminster government of "escaping scrutiny" on the subject. After launching his party's manifesto, the SNP leader adds "we cannot be climate deniers" and that it is "irresponsible" of the prime minister to pledge to authorise 100 new oil and gas licenses.
