Boris Johnson has firmly rejected a second referendum on Scotland’s independence.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon requested the vote, to be held later this year.

Her formal application to the UK Government meant any referendum – or indyref2 – would be legal.

But the Prime Minister has ruled out the bid.

He pointed out how the last vote in 2014 would be “once in a generation”.

He added he’d “carefully considered and noted” her arguments a vote would “continue the political stagnation Scotland has seen for the past decade”.

Ms Sturgeon said on social media the Conservative party was attempting to “deny democracy”.

In 2014 voters returned a result of 55% to stay in the UK.
