According to the NatCen Social Research social attitudes survey:
- Some 21% believe Scotland should go its own way, the latest British social attitudes survey found.
- This was a 5% fall from the 26% who supported independence back in 2011.
- Almost half of people in the UK want Scotland to remain in the union, while a further 18% think it should stay and ditch its Parliament in Holyrood.
