Johnson looks to improve ties on first visit to Scotland as UK PM

Boris Johnson is looking to strengthen London's relationship with Scotland as he makes his first trip there as the UK prime minister.

    The possibility of a no-deal Brexit has renewed calls for a vote on independence. And UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is also facing dissent in his party ranks.

    The Scottish regional leader of his Conservative Party, Ruth Davidson, has publicly challenged him over his Brexit plans, saying she will not support a no-deal exit from the European Union.
