EXCERPTS
Nicola Sturgeon will today unveil plans to spend £840 million a year on "transformational" plans to introduce a system of full-time state childcare as she set her sights on another decade in power.
The First Minister will also re-affirm her commitment to a second independence referendum after Brexit when she tells SNP delegates at the party's conference in Glasgow that it is time to "put Scotland in the driving seat".
