10:00 pm
tonight at ten. the snp wins an historic fourth term in office — nicola sturgeon says she wants the scottish people to have the right to choose their future. celebrating victory — the first minister says another independence referendum is the will of the country. there is simply no democratic justification whatsoever for borisjohnson, or indeed for anyone else, seeking to block the right of the people of scotland to choose our own future. but the uk government says a second referendum on independence would be irresponsible and reckless. coming out of the pandemic, it is the wrong time to have yet another divisive referendum and yet another bout of constitutional argument on a matter such as this. we'll have the latest on the results in scotland, england and wales.
10:01 pm
also tonight: disruption continues on some of the uk's busiest rail lines — passengers are advised not to travel tomorrow after cracks were found on some high—speed trains. a man in his 20s is held in connection with the murder of the police community support officerjulia james. and an undercover invesigation— the queen's cousin prince michael of kent is secretly filmed talking about taking money from a prospective client for access to the kremlin. good evening. the scottish national party has won an historic fourth term in office — but has fallen short of an overall majority byjust one seat. but there will still be a clear majority at holyrood in favour
10:02 pm
of a second referendum on independence, with the scottish greens also back a vote. scotland's first minister nicola sturgeon said another referendum is the will of the country. but borisjohnson said allowing one would be "irresponsible and reckless". with all the votes now counted, this is how the parties stand in the holyrood parliament. the snp has gained 64 seats up one from last time, the conservatives are the second largest party with labour third and the greens gaining two seats. our scotland editor sarah smith is outside holyrood for us this evening. with those results you can see how the constitutional battle lines are going to be drawn. we have nicola sturgeon declaring that as the people of scotland have voted for parties who made a clear manifesto commitment to hold another referendum, then borisjohnson has no democraticjustification in trying to block that vote. while the
10:03 pm
prime minister is carefully not saying he will never allow one, but very firmly saying now is not the time. across scotland, victorious snp candidates are celebrating increasing their votes and winning a remarkable fourth time in government. kaukab stewart became the first woman of colour elected to the first woman of colour elected to the scottish parliament.— the scottish parliament. whilst i ma be the scottish parliament. whilst i may be the _ the scottish parliament. whilst i may be the first, _ the scottish parliament. whilst i may be the first, i _ the scottish parliament. whilst i may be the first, i will _ the scottish parliament. whilst i may be the first, i will not - the scottish parliament. whilst i may be the first, i will not be i the scottish parliament. whilst i | may be the first, i will not be the last. �* , ., , . last. and with the pro-independence ma'ori in last. and with the pro-independence majority in the _ last. and with the pro-independence majority in the parliament, - last. and with the pro-independence majority in the parliament, nicola i majority in the parliament, nicola sturgeon says westminster cannot stand in the way of another referendum. mil stand in the way of another referendum.— stand in the way of another referendum. all of this risks treatinu referendum. all of this risks treating voters _ referendum. all of this risks treating voters in _ referendum. all of this risks treating voters in scotland l referendum. all of this risks i treating voters in scotland and referendum. all of this risks - treating voters in scotland and our entire democratic process as if they simply don't matter, like they are just a sideshow. voters are not a sideshow. it is you, not me, not borisjohnson, not any politician, boris johnson, not any politician, but you who are the people that matter. there is simply no democraticjustification

10:06 pm
manifesto promise to give voters in scotland a choice over whether they want to leave the united kingdom. tonight, the prime minister has written a letter to nicola sturgeon congratulating her on her victory and sing as the united kingdom is facing unprecedented challenges, he is advising her and there was first minister, mark brayford to a summit to see how they can work together to overcome some of these challenges. although he does say that he accedes that they may not always agree. so maybe a bit of a typical understatement from the prime minister tonight. understatement from the prime ministertonight. sarah understatement from the prime minister tonight. sarah smith, understatement from the prime ministertonight. sarah smith, thank you. in westminster, the focus will now turn to how the prime minister responds to the snps victory. meanwhile after disappointing results in council elections in england, labour has fared better in contests for mayor. but the conservatives are continuing to pick up support in what were once labour strongholds. here's our political editor laura kuenssberg — her report contains
10:07 pm
some flashing images. can they shake on anything now? if the argument over scotland's place in the united kingdom will be settled, only one of them can win. in edinburgh, she would like another vote on independent but parliament in westminster would say no. this is not the time — in westminster would say no. this is not the time to _ in westminster would say no. this is not the time to be _ in westminster would say no. this is not the time to be talking _ in westminster would say no. this is not the time to be talking about - in westminster would say no. this is not the time to be talking about a i not the time to be talking about a second referendum, to be getting in divisive and distracting constitutional wrangles. we should put all of our energy right now into tackling the pandemic. but put all of our energy right now into tackling the pandemic.— tackling the pandemic. but with -each tackling the pandemic. but with peach papers — tackling the pandemic. but with peach papers and _ tackling the pandemic. but with peach papers and ballots - tackling the pandemic. but with peach papers and ballots piling| peach papers and ballots piling sky—high for the snp, voters granted them a record—breaking fourth term in charge in scotland with powers over health, education and much else. but it is their desire for scotland to be an independent country that puts them at odds with the unionist parties and the tories. who in this unusual and eventful set of elections... have dominated count

10:11 pm
a soggy saturday celebration. mark drakeford was front and centre of labour's campaign in wales, and it worked, equalling their best ever result here, a very different story to other parts of the uk. i think the difference between wales and england is that people in wales can see the record of a labour government. they can see what we have achieved together over the period of devolution, and they know that, if we say something in our manifesto, then they can have confidence that it will be delivered. after two decades in government, many within labour expected their grip on power in wales to loosen. instead, the pandemic has flipped convention on its head, and it's the incumbents who have come out stronger. especially in places like porthcawl. 18 months ago, voters in this constituency kicked out their labour mp but, in this election, they stuck with the party, and that seems to be largely down to trust in its leader. mark drakeford has done very well
10:12 pm
this year, you know, with this pandemic and everything else he's had to deal with. well, he's come across clearly and said what we want to hear and what we were going to do. i think people have thought he has handled it very well too. that popularity will be tested by what lies ahead, rebuilding the nhs and restoring the economy will require tough financial decisions once the victory parade has run its course. hywell griffith, bbc news. some of the results in the local council elections in england are still coming in. this is how they currently stand — labour has lost control of six councils, while the conservatives have made 12 gains. with votes happening across scotland, wales and england, reeta chakrabarti looks at some of the key areas that have determined the outcome. in scotland, the focus had been on whether the snp could gain an overall majority. they didn't manage to, they gained these three seats,
10:13 pm
they took east lothian from labour. they took ayr from the conservatives and they took edinburgh central from the conservatives, a big game there. but there was evidence elsewhere in other marginal seats that they were targeting of tactical voting by unionist voters to keep the snp out, so they had a strong night but did not get their overall majority that they were aiming for. in wales, the story is very labour focused one. labour had a very good night, it equalled its previous best of 30 seats in the senedd and there had been a lot of focus on whether the conservatives could gain seats from labour. they did manage to gain the vale of clywd and they also took brecon and radnorshire from the liberal democrats. but that surge we saw from the conservatives in 2019 in the general election didn't happen. labour managed to gain rhondda from plaid cymru
10:14 pm
and that was a big gain for them, a big swing from plaid. now in england, there has been a whole host of local elections and here the story has been of a very strong conservative performance. conservatives gaining seats all over england, including cannock chase which has never been conservative before. you can also see conversely, labour had a bad night of it, they lost harlow to the conservatives and they lost southampton to the conservatives. there was a crumb of comfort in the mayoral elections though for labour. here you'll see rather more red on the board. they held doncaster, liverpool, salford amongst others. and in the west of england they gained the mayoral seat from the conservatives. reeta chakra barti there. let's go live to westminster and our political editor laura kuenssberg. questions about the union coming to the fore again now?— the fore again now? certainly, there is a fault line — the fore again now? certainly, there is a fault line that _ the fore again now? certainly, there is a fault line that stretches - the fore again now? certainly, there is a fault line that stretches from - is a fault line that stretches from london to edinburgh and back again. borisjohnson and nicola sturgeon are at odds over whether or not they
10:15 pm
should be another referendum on scottish independence. nicola sturgeon will point to her pro—independence majority in the scottish parliament and is making accusations that borisjohnson is anti—democratic for suggesting it cannot happen. on the unionist side they will point to the fact she did not make the high bar majority on her own. they said it would be once in a generation when it happened seven years ago. while the parliament is very pro—independent, the snp completely dominant, the public is pretty much exactly 50—50 on both sides, the conservatives, the unionists and the snp all do agree on one thing, that now isn't the moment. borisjohnson is going to phone nicola sturgeon to offer his congratulations tomorrow, and that will be the start of what could be a very tricky conversation. questions about the labour party, the direction it is going?— the direction it is going? labour had a drubbing _ the direction it is going? labour had a drubbing on _ the direction it is going? labour had a drubbing on day _ the direction it is going? labour had a drubbing on day one - the direction it is going? labour had a drubbing on day one of i had a drubbing on day one of results, but better science today.
10:16 pm
whether that was in peterborough and cambridge where they took the mayoral vote and a good performance in wales, but keir starmer has completely flabbergasted and astounded some of his colleagues by stripping his deputy, angela rayner, of her role as chair of the party. why does that matter, given yesterday he was on the away saying we have to change, do things differently and show we are a differently and show we are a different party? it matters because she is a popularfigure different party? it matters because she is a popular figure with different party? it matters because she is a popularfigure with members and is popular with other mps. she is somebody from the north of england, exactly where he says the party has to reach out and connect with. and while he did promise change, this isn't the kind of thing that many in the labour party had in margin. ratherthan that many in the labour party had in margin. rather than concentrating on decent or better results today, instead labour is already breaking out tonight in an argument about the way forward. out tonight in an argument about the way forward-— way forward. laura kuenssberg in westminster. _ way forward. laura kuenssberg in westminster, thank _ way forward. laura kuenssberg in westminster, thank you. -
