The Yes campaign for Scottish independence has set a target of one million declarations of support before the referendum.

Yes Scotland's chief executive Blair Jenkins has revealed that the campaign has gathered 791,191 declarations from people who say they will back independence in the September vote.

Mr Jenkins welcomed the progress towards this number, as he described plans to ramp up the Yes campaign in the final months.

"It's the sharp end of the campaign," he said.

"That's where the strength of the on-the-ground campaign going to be vital."
