More than 60 per cent of voters in Scotland opted to stay in the European Union in the Brexit referendum, while 52 per cent voted for Brexit across Britain and Northern Ireland.
On Tuesday Scottish MSPs voted 69 to 59 in favor of requesting another referendum, which would be held sometime between autumn 2018 and spring 2019.
Scotland's devolved government, which is run by the pro-independence Scottish National Party (SNP), has said Scots should not be dragged out of the European Union against their will.

A spokesman for the First Minister said: "This poll shows that, in trying to block a referendum, the UK Tory government is acting against the wishes of the people of Scotland".

The UK Government has already indicated the request will be declined.
Scottish lawmakers have voted to seek a new referendum on independence, to be held within the next two years.
