Among those who have decided which way they are going to vote, 53% are against independence, with 47% in favour.

MP egged as he urges Scottish voters to say 'no'

Hecklers following Glasgow MP Jim Murphy on his 'Better Together' tour of Scotland took things one step further today, hurling eggs at him as he spoke.

Labour MP Mr Murphy is on a 100-day tour of 100 towns and cities, taking to high streets up and down the country to stand on his two irn-bru crates and spread his message urging people to vote against Scottish Independence.

In recent weeks and days he's been getting a rough time in certain place by some Yes supporters.

A group of independence supporters have been routinely turning up and trying to drown Jim out and challenge him on what he is saying.

Today in Kirkcaldy, the shouting and jeering went one step further and ended with him being egged.

He is said to be fine after being struck and is taking it in good spirits.
