Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said a second Independence referendum is very much on the table.
Scotland is to enter immediate talks with the EU in order to ensure it remains part of the union.
The Scottish cabinet met this morning to discuss the way forward in the wake of Britain's vote to leave.
A majority in Scotland voted to Remain.
The Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says they must maintain links with Europe: “Cabinet agreed that we will seek to enter immediate discussions with EU institutions and other EU states, to explore all possible options to protect Scotland’s place in the EU.”
