Cloud formation 'shows England without Scotland'

A Scottish holidaymaker is hoping that a cloud she spotted has not predicted the outcome of the independence referendum.


Photographed in Sardinia in August, the cloud appears to resemble England, Wales and Northern Ireland with Scotland noticeably absent.

Gillian Degnan, 44, who grew up in North Ayrshire, said: "The referendum is the talking point between everyone at the moment and I started to wonder whether it was an omen about how the vote is going to go."

As she now lives in Nottinghamshire, Gillian won't be able to vote on Thursday, but said if she could, "I would vote No. I think Scotland would be too small on its own."
