A CLAP for Nicola Sturgeon has been planned to coincide with her 50th birthday.

An event on Facebook urges fans of the First Minister to get involved by clapping at 8pm on Sunday, July 19, the day of her birthday.

A statement said: “Our First Minister has done an exceptional job throughout what’s been a strange year so far, to say the least.

"Let’s give Nicola the “full regalia” on her 50th birthday.”
