STV apologises over independence debate online crash

Scottish broadcaster STV has apologised over its online coverage of the independence debate in which its system crashed.

While television viewers in Scotland could watch the clash between the country's First Minister Alex Salmond and former Chancellor Alistair Darling, a surge in demand online across the rest of the UK caused STV's livestream to to go offline.

The two-hour long clash was being broadcast on STV, on ITV Borders Scotland via Freeview and online at www.stv.tv.
