Former Prime Minister Gordon Brown has laid out the main reasons he believes Scotland would be better off staying in the United Kingdom.
Thousands of defence jobs will be at risk if Scotland votes for independence in September, according to Defence Secretary Philip Hammond.
The boss of Scotland's largest industrial company tells ITV News he believes Scottish independence would bring "real costs" for business.
The headteacher of Preston Flores' school has paid tribute to the seven-year-old, who has died after suffering severe burns in an incident on Good Friday near his home in Aberdeen.
Michelle McKay, acting head of Sunnybank school said:
"Preston was a lively and competitive little boy who loved football, PE and all sorts of outdoor activities, as well as board games, baking and building with Lego.
"He was a fun-loving boy with a great sense of humour and lots of friends. He loved his family too, and was always sharing with us the latest news about his new baby brother.
A seven-year-old boy injured on Friday in an incident involving petrol in Aberdeen has died in hospital, the police have said.
Preston Flores was found "on fire" by neighbours in on Friday at about 2pm and taken to hospital to be treated for severe burns.
Pensions have a more secure future if the "risks are spread across the UK" than if Scotland choses to be an independent nation, according to Gordon Brown.
In a speech given later today the former Prime Minister will say:
– Gordon Brown
The SNP Government has said the case for independence should be judged on whether Scotland would benefit financially or not.
It is clear that pensioners are better protected when the risks are spread across the UK and it is also clear that, in the year the SNP want independence, the Scots pension bill alone is three times the income from oil revenues.
Indeed the best deal for poorer pensioners is the redistribution of resources we have negotiated within the UK which allowed pensioner poverty in Scotland to fall under Labour, from 33% in 1997 to 11% when we left office.
Scotland faces a "pensions time bomb" if it choses to leave the union in September's referendum, according to former prime minister Gordon Brown.
Pensions will be more secure and cheaper to administer if Scotland remains in the UK, the Scottish Labour MP will say in his first speech for the cross-party Better Together campaign.
However, if Scotland leaves the union, the first annual pension bill would be "three times the income from oil", the former Labour party leader is expected to say in his speech.
And it faces a "pensioner time bomb" as the number of elderly people is growing faster than the working age population, an internal Department of Work and Pensions memo procured by Mr Brown said.
The mother of a seven-year-old boy who was badly burned in a city street has thanked the medical staff caring for him.
Preston Flores was found "on fire" by neighbours in Bedford Avenue, Aberdeen, on Friday at about 2pm.
It is thought petrol could have been involved. He was taken to hospital in Aberdeen before being transferred to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh in a critical condition.
– Luisza, mother of Preston Flores
We are very grateful for everything that has been done to help Preston and his family at this extremely difficult time. On behalf of us all I want to thank the medical staff and the emergency services for all they are doing to help us.
We are also very appreciative of the support of our friends and the local Bedford community as well as the wider public. We thank everyone for their help in our time of need and would kindly request that we are now allowed our privacy to deal with this as a family ourselves.
