The former leader of Scottish Labour has said there is a “serious prospect” that Jeremy Corbyn would agree to hold a second independence referendum.

Kezia Dugdale said she believes Mr Corbyn would give consent for indyref2 if he needed SNP support to form a government after a general election.

And she predicted Boris Johnson could “gamble” by holding an independence referendum if he becomes PM.

Ms Dugdale was speaking on her last full day as an MSP at Holyrood.

The Lothians MSP served as Scottish Labour’s leader for two years before quitting in August 2017.

She will take up a new job as director of the John Smith Centre at Glasgow University later in the summer.
