Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said she would travel to Brussels on Wednesday for talks with European Parliament leaders, saying she was "utterly determined" to defend Scotland's place in the EU following a vote by Britain to leave the bloc.
"Tomorrow I will make an initial visit to Brussels to set out Scotland's position and interests," Sturgeon told the Scottish parliament, adding: "Through all of this I am determined, utterly determined to preserve Scotland's relationship and place within the EU".
