Three quarters of Scots would vote yes if there was a second independence referendum, a new poll has revealed.

The shock figure is released just days after SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon revealed plans to launch a new campaign for separation from the rest of the UK.

Some 76% clicked ‘yes’ when asked how they would vote “in a second Scottish independence referendum” in a poll from Herald Scotland.

Meanwhile Ms Sturgeon hit back at claims that Scottish independence has suffered because of the SNP losing its Holyrood majority.

The party fell two seats short – but there are six pro-independence Green MSPs meaning most of the Scottish Parliament wants Scotland to leave the UK.

She said: “There is a majority of MSPs in Scotland who support Scotland becoming an independent country.

“So it’s a ridiculous notion to say that because the Conservatives managed to get scarcely over 20 per cent of the vote that somehow the case for independence has taken a step back. The contrary is the case.”

In the September 2014 referendum, 44.7% voted yes while 55.3% voted no meaning that Scotland remained a part of the UK.
