Tennant’s Scots plea
ACTOR David Tennant has vowed to back Scottish independence in a second referendum.
The Scots-born Doctor Who and Broadchurch star had previously rejected the SNP’s drive to go it alone.
But EU supporter Tennant, 45, has changed his mind after the UK Brexit vote.
He said: “I’m now at the point where I think if Scotland goes again for a referendum they should go independent.
Te n n a n t added: “Politically I think we’re in for quite a dark time.”
At the time of the last vote for independence, Tennant, who was born in Bathgate, near Edinburgh, reportedly said it was not for him to have an opinion as he no longer considered himself to be Scottish.
In the 2014 independence referendum the country voted by a margin of around 55 per cent to 45 to stay part of the UK.
But there have been calls for a second referendum after the EU vote last June showed a majority of Scots voted to remain. THREE sisters all gave birth for the first time within days to delight new grandparents Paul and Sharon Kennedy, of Gt Bardfield, Essex.
