SCOTLAND is on the “threshold” of becoming independent, the Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has told the SNP conference.

In a rallying cry to activists at the party’s last formal gathering before September’s referendum, she said there was “much work still to do” to secure a Yes vote, but the momentum was on their side.

She said 80 years on from the foundation of the party, “the last mile of our journey to independence is upon us”.

She hailed the referendum as the “biggest and best opportunity we will ever have to build a better country”.

She told the conference: “Here we are, standing at last on the threshold of our nation’s independence.

“Our positive movement for change is growing with every single day that passes and let me predict today that by the time we reach September, our momentum will be simply unstoppable.”
