    Earlier this week, the EU formally agreed to extend Britain’s exit process until 31 January 2020, in a move that was followed by the UK Parliament’s House of Commons voting to hold a snap general election on 12 December.

    The National's Rally for Independence, is taking place on George Square in Glasgow on Saturday.

    Nicola Sturgeon will be the headline speaker at the rally as part of her continued push for a second vote on the issue to be held next year.

    Sturgeon announced on Friday that she will demand power from Westminster to hold another Scottish independence referendum within days of the election result, and that current Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn would permit one if he were to become Prime Minister.

    Scotland held its first independence vote in 2014, which saw Scots vote by 55% against independence and 45% in favour.
