Video: Alex Salmond tips new SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon to secure Scottish Independence

Alex Salmond has tipped Nicola Sturgeon, his successor as the Scottish National Party (SNP) leader to "make history" and secure the country's exit from the UK. Mr Salmond made the prediction as he stepped down from the role of SNP leader, with Ms Sturgeon now taking over the job. After more than seven years at the helm of the nationalist administration in Edinburgh, Mr Salmond will formally stand down as First Minister next week, when Ms Sturgeon will become the first woman to hold the post.
