Marking five years since the independence referendum, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:

"It is difficult to believe that five years have passed since that campaign. We had the power in our hands and we made the right decision for the future of our country. The nationalists gave it everything for the once in a lifetime vote but the partnership of the United Kingdom endured.

"It is disappointing that the SNP have not stood by the Edinburgh Agreement after the legal, fair and decisive vote.

"The country has had enough division and damage with Brexit and independence. It's time to make it stop.

"The Liberal Democrats will continue to stand up for Scotland's place in the UK and the UK's place in Europe."
