Despite voting decisively to stay in the UK just seven years ago, momentum for a second Scottish independence referendum is growing. 

Nicola Sturgeon argues the SNP has a clear mandate after winning 64 seats at the May election (notably one seat short of a majority but one more than the party won in 2016) and has urged Holyrood’s opposition parties to unite behind her in calls for a second vote, as soon as the immediate Covid health crisis has passed.

There are problems for Unionists across the border too, with an exclusive Telegraph poll showing only 20 per cent of English voters "strongly oppose" separation. 

In the video above, The Telegraph’s Political Editor, Ben Riley-Smith, travels the length and breadth of Scotland, meeting politicians from across the spectrum. He examines why appetite for independence is growing, whether there really will be a second referendum and if so, who will win.
