Alex Salmond Resigns: Watch The First Minister's Top Ten Moments

Sky News

Alex Salmond's resignation following the decision by voters to reject Scottish independence brings an end to his time as first minister.

Speaking on Friday, he said it had been the "privilege of his life" to serve as first minister, but the time had come for someone new to take charge, as he said he would step down at the SNP's Annual conference in November. "For Scotland, the campaign continues and the dream shall never die," he said.

This marks a new chapter for Salmond, who came from being a member of the Westminster parliament to the longest-serving Scottish First Minister so far. HuffPostUK looks back at his top ten moments.
