LONDON, March 10 (Reuters) - A second Scottish independence referendum is now looking inevitable and ministers in London have now concluded it is a question of when such a vote will be held, the Financial Times reported on Friday.

"It’s looking inevitable, I don’t think we’re in any position to stop it happening," the FT quoted one unidentified minister close to the discussions as saying.

Another unidentified person briefed on current thinking in PM Theresa May's office said: “The debate is only going to be about the date.” (Reporting by Guy Faulconbridge; editing by James Davey)
