Nicola Sturgeon has suggested the SNP would be open to a "progressive alliance" with Labour if the general election results in a hung parliament.

She branded Labour plans to raise taxes on the richest as "reckless" but warned that a vote for the Tories was "a vote for more cuts".

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says the Scottish National Party (SNP) is ready to form a coalition with the UK's Labour Party against Prime Minister Theresa May in the upcoming general election.

But during an interview with Bauer and Global radio stations he was pressed on what would happen if he ended up in Number 10.

However, analysts say she was also hoping to get a larger majority in the UK Parliament in order to silence possible opposition from other parties to the outcome of the Brexit talks.

He spoke out as Ms Sturgeon made clear that "if the arithmetic lends itself to a progressive alliance that can lock the Tories out of government, I would want the SNP to be part of that". She expects Theresa May to win a majority, she said.

Ms Sturgeon gave her biggest hint yet that she would change the policy when she publishes her manifesto tomorrow.

The SNP leader, who is pushing for a second referendum on Scottish independence before the Brexit process has been completed, also set out her bid to keep Scotland in the EU. However, they have also rejected independence from the United Kingdom in a 2015 referendum.

"This might suit the two of them but it would be a disaster for Scotland - dragging us back to more division just at the moment when we need to move on, together".

Speaking on the BBC's Sunday Politics Scotland, Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale said people were "distressed, upset and worried" about the prospect of a second independence referendum and that it was her party's job to block it.

Sturgeon, who said she wants an independent Scotland to be a full member of the European Union, argues that a new choice is needed because Scots voted to stay in the bloc in a referendum last June, at odds with the overall vote to leave.

Ms Davidson said it "looks like a sweetheart deal is in the offing" and claimed this would be a "disaster for Scotland".

"We've got that mandate already", she said, adding that victory would "underline and reinforce that mandate".
