Former prime minister Gordon Brown will speak today at the launch of a distinct Labour campaign to keep Scotland in the United Kingdom.

The Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath MP will be in Glasgow to help unveil the United with Labour drive, which distances the party from Tory and Liberal Democrat colleagues in the pro-Union Better Together movement.

Scottish party leader Johann Lamont and her deputy, the MP Anas Sarwar, will also take part in setting out a "different view" of Scotland's future at the event in the Emirates Arena.
