Johnson declines invitation to meet Sturgeon during Scotland visit

Scotland Correspondent

Boris Johnson has begun a two-day visit to Scotland with a trip to a police training centre in Fife. It’s the prime minister’s first appearance in Scotland since January after he stayed away from the country during the Scottish Parliament elections in May.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said earlier it was “strange” that he had declined an invitation to meet her on the trip.
