As Scottish politicians push for a fresh independence referendum we look at how oil, gas, whisky, salmon and tourism could support its aspirations.


Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon wants to hold a second vote on the country’s independence, three years after the previous unsuccessful referendum attempt to do that.

British Prime Minister Theresa May says that would cause more economic uncertainty.
