SUPPORT for independence has surged and now sits at 47%, according to a new poll.

Scottish Labour has also moved into second place behind the SNP in both Westminster and Holyrood voting intentions, a Survation survey for the Daily Record found.

The poll for Westminster support put the SNP on 37% - the same as the party polled in June - with Labour up one point to 28% and the Scottish Conservatives down four to 25%.

At Holyrood, the SNP lead on 39% for constituency voting intentions, followed by Labour on 25% and the Tories on 24%, while the list votes see the SNP on 33%, Labour 25% and the Tories on 22%.

The poll of 1,000 Scots was carried out online between November 27 and 30, just over a week after Richard Leonard succeeded Kezia Dugdale as Scottish Labour leader.

Professor John Curtice said even a marginal change in support could have a big impact on future elections.

He told the Record: "Scotland has gone from being a land of safe seats to a land of marginals. Even a change of just 1% could see some seats change hands."

Survation also found that support for Scottish independence is two points higher than it was in the 2014 referendum, with 47% of those questioned now backing Yes.

On Brexit, the Record poll found that EU support has strengthened in Scotland, with 68% saying they would vote Remain if the referendum was repeated, up from 62% north of the border last year.

Almost half of Scots (49%) think the UK will not make a success of Brexit compared with 33% who are confident it will go well. The remaining 18% are unsure.
