LONDON - Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Wednesday she was given a "sympathetic" hearing in Brussels where she made her case for finding a way to keep Scotland in the European Union after Britain voted to leave the bloc last week.

"Since I've been here today I've found enormous interest in the referendum result as you would expect and I've also had a sympathetic response to the position Scotland now finds itself in, facing the prospect of being taken out of the European Union against our will," she told a news conference.

"I've found doors to be open here today .. we are right now in uncharted territory and none of this is easy," she said.
