Alex Salmond will make his outgoing speech as SNP leader today.

Mr Salmond will hand over leadership of the SNP to Nicola Sturgeon before taking to the podium in Perth Concert hall to deliver his valedictory address to conference.

On what is bound to be a highly charged occasion, Mr Salmond will reflect on a referendum that saw his bid for Scottish independence defeated by the 55.4 per cent of Scots who voted against it.
