Nicola Sturgeon explodes at right wing activist outside polling station: 'Fascist racist!'

Sturgeon visits polling station in Glasgow

Nicola Sturgeon has been confronted while leaving a polling station in Glasgow by a rival candidate for her seat, Jayda Fransen. Ms Fransen, who is running as an independent, has links with the far-right party Britain First. Footage shows the activist march up to the SNP leader as Ms Sturgeon gathered with party volunteers leading fiery altercations between the two. The First Minister stood her ground, branding Ms Fransen as a "fascist" and a "racist" as the row continued down the street.

The clash came after Ms Fransen approached the First Minister and shouted: "Nicola, how are you?"

Ms Sturgeon replied: "Hi, I'm sorry."

Which lead Ms Fransen to fire back: "What you sorry for?"

"Because you're a fascist and a racist," came the response from Ms Sturgeon.

Video taken from the incident shows Fransen continue to heckle the SNP leader as Ms Sturgeon attempts to walk away.

The former deputy leader of Britain First is captured ranting about "Mass immigration, Marxism."

At this point, Ms Sturgeon is heard to turn and say: "You don't know anything about this constituency."

"You're a fraud," interrupts Ms Fransen.

The FM continued: "We'll see the locals' view later on."

She goes on to tell the right-wing candidate the Glasgow southside voters will reject her extreme views.

Ms Sturgeon yells: "You're a racist. You're a fascist.

"A racist and the Southside of Glasgow will reject you."
