Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has been cleared by an independent inquiry of breaching the ministerial code.

Her supporters say the outcome, which comes after weeks of mounting pressure, should end the calls for her to resign.

The inquiry, led by the prominent lawyer James Hamilton, examined claims that Ms Sturgeon deliberately misled parliament following allegations of sexual harassment made against the former First Minister Alex Salmond.

Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting by Scotland editor Sarah Smith.
