Scotland Correspondent

In his first conference speech as SNP leader, Humza Yousaf has called for an international refugee programme for people fleeing violence in Gaza.

He says Scotland would be the first country willing to take people in.

In the wake of a bruising defeat for his party at the Rutherglen by-election, he told delegates to ”roll up their sleeves” and insisted independence was still achievable, despite the problems in his party.
