Defiant Nicola Sturgeon wins vote of no confidence and says she will ‘not be bullied out of office’

A Conservative attempt to unseat her – despite the first minister being cleared of breaching the ministerial code by an independent investigation – was easily defeated at Holyrood by 65 votes to 31.

Before the vote, a defiant Ms Sturgeon told her critics: “If you think you can bully me out of office, you are mistaken.”

Turning on the Tories, she said: “There are some in this chamber who decided before a single word of evidence was said that I was guilty in relation to the handling of complaints against the former first minister.”
