Cat is 'whiskered' away from Scottish polling station

Ballot counting was observed by party supporters throughout Scotland on Friday (May 7), as first results in the crucial parliament elections showed early successes for Scotland's main pro-independence party.

The SNP won five of the first six seats to be declared, although there was an increase in support in some areas for opposition pro-union parties, indicating the final outcome of the election could be very close.

When asked what it would mean if the SNP did win a majority in the devolved parliament, which was created in 1999, Johnson said he would wait and see what happens in the next few hours.
