East Dunbartonshire SNP MP John Nicolson has said there are “interesting times ahead” following the Brexit referendum vote.

While more than 70 per cent of voters in East Dunbartonshire opted to remain in the EU, Britain as a whole voted to leave.

Mr Nicolson said: “Last night saw a clear and unambiguous vote for Scotland to remain in the EU.

“I am proud that East Dunbartonshire voted so overwhelmingly in favour of continuing to work and cooperate with our friends in Europe as a full member of the European Union, it is quite wrong for us to be dragged out against our will.

“There are interesting times ahead of us.”
