Humza Yousaf clashes with Douglas Ross over collapse of power-sharing agreement with Greens

Humza Yousaf and Douglas Ross were embroiled in a heated clash in the Scottish Parliament after the first minister ended the so-called Bute House Agreement underpinning the Scottish government coalition with immediate effect on Thursday, 25 April.

The leader of the Scottish Conservative Party later said he would table a motion of no confidence Mr Yousaf, with Mr Ross describing him as "weak" and a "failed first minister”.

Mr Yousaf removed Greens co-leaders Patrick Harvie and Lorna Slater from the government, and the SNP is set to act as a minority government going forward.

It comes after the Greens were angered when the Scottish government announced it was to ditch a key climate change target.
