Row over the costs of Scottish Independence

The people of Scotland were presented with contrasting and some say confusing information about their financial future after September's independence vote. One side of the campaign says they will be a £1,000 better off if Scotland votes "yes".

The other side say that a "no" vote will benefit them by £1,400.

Scottish people will be £1,400 a year better off if the country remains in the UK, Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander said. However, the Scottish government claimed an independent country could be £5 billion a year better off.
