Scotland makes formal request to UK for independence vote

The Scottish government on Friday formally notified British Prime Minister Theresa May of its request for a second referendum on independence, deepening a crisis sparked by the Brexit vote.
"I am... writing to begin early discussions between our governments to agree an Order under section 30 of the Scotland Act 1998 that would enable a referendum to be legislated for by the Scottish Parliament," First Minister Nicola Sturgeon wrote in a letter to May.
