Support for Scottish independence has slipped below the 45% achieved in 2014, according to a new Yougov poll for the Times Newspaper.

It suggests 44% would back a Yes vote if there was another referendum, with 56% choosing to stay part of the UK.

It comes as the SNP concludes its own national survey, which aimed to get the views of two million voters on Europe, Brexit and independence. The results have not been published.
