An SNP adviser made a brilliant correction to this Sun headline

Earlier this week Nicola Sturgeon attended a joint ministerial council for the leaders of the UK in the hope that Theresa May would present a coherent plan for Brexit.

Leaders from Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland attended the No 10 meeting, where the prime minister attempted to allay serious concerns about leaving the EU.
