Sturgeon Warns of EU Exit 'backlash'

Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has warned of a "strong backlash" if Scotland were to be taken out of the EU by an UK-wide referendum.
The SNP leader will use a speech in Brussels to say a vote to take the UK out of the European Union could cause a "groundswell of anger" in Scotland and believes it could produce a "clamour" for another vote on Scottish independence referendum.
Prime Minister David Cameron has promised an in/out EU referendum that would take place by the end of 2017.
During her speech in Brussels, Ms Sturgeon will say Scotland has much to offer the EU and "much to learn" from the example of its smaller member states.
