Nicola Sturgeon: 'I'm not rushing towards another referendum'
Nicola Sturgeon has insisted she is not "rushing towards" another Scottish independence referendum.
The SNP leader announced on Thursday that a bill beginning a consultation on a second independence vote would be published next week.
In a BBC interview she promised to explore all options short of independence that would maintain Scotland's place in the single market.
But, if that fails, she said Scots had a right to consider a "different path".
