Theresa May will meet Nicola Sturgeon in Scotland later for the first time since the SNP announced their proposals for a second independence referendum.

At the beginning of a week that will see Article 50 triggered on Wednesday, the PM will say she wants to “build a more united nation”.

Mrs May has said “now is not the time” for a Scottish independence referendum, as the Brexit process is due to begin.

Meanwhile, Labour is due to outline its Brexit negotiation demands later.

The prime minister is travelling to Scotland the day before Scottish Parliament is expected to pass a vote in favour of seeking a new Scottish independence referendum – which Ms Sturgeon wants to hold in autumn 2018 or spring 2019.

The first minister has said that a second referendum should be held ahead of the UK’s EU departure to give the people of Scotland a choice between what she calls a “hard Brexit” and becoming an independent country.
