Cameron warns Scots face living in 'foreign country'

David Cameron has warned Scots they face living in a "foreign country" if Alex Salmond triumphs in the upcoming independence referendum.

Addressing an audience of schoolchildren in the town of Lockerbie, the Prime Minister played up how Scots benefit from being connected to London, which he described as "an enormous and precious asset".

Mr Cameron also emphasised the employment and educational links between Scotland and the rest of the UK, saying: "People in Scotland say to me 'I've got children working or studying in London', and people in London say to me 'I've got children working or studying in Scotland'.

"Do we really want to have a situation where they are working or studying in a foreign country?"
