At the Edinburgh count Cameron Buchanan, MSP for Lothian, says he is 'very hopeful' that the No campaign will see a win in a few hours.

The first result declared was a 'surprise', saying: "I didn't think the result was going to be quite as decisive in Clackmannan."

Asked about the result he said he was: "Optimistic and hopeful. What I've been struck by is the good humour today, the party atmosphere going round the polling stations which has been great."

Local Conservative Councillor Lindsay Paterson agreed that the early result was a boost to the 'No Thanks' camp: "Obviously we've got a long way to go but the early signs are encouraging."
