Nicola Sturgeon accuses Labour of copying SNP's polices

She added: "So I'll challenge her (May) today, change your mind, come and join us on Thursday - I'd say the same to Jeremy Corbyn - and let's have a proper debate".

The First Minister also defended her decision to pursue a second independence referendum earlier this and said students concerned about independence should still vote for the SNP.

The First Minister's proposals to keep Scotland in the single market after Brexit were rejected out of hand by the UK Government in December but Ms Sturgeon believes victory at the polls will give a mandate to her plans.
