Gap narrows as Independence referendum approaches

The gap between the 'Yes' and 'No' votes in the Scottish independence referendum appears to be narrowing, according to a new poll.

The YouGov survey in tomorrow's Sun newspaper suggests the 'Yes' lead has shrunk from 22 points less than a month ago to just six.

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

Cameron: No vote means security for Scotland

David Cameron has urged the No campaign to continue promoting "a secure future" for Scotland as part of the UK compared with the "insecurity" of independence.

The Prime Minister was speaking this morning at a marine engineering company in Loanhead, Midlothian that makes parts for Royal Navy submarines.

"I think it's certainty versus uncertainty, a secure future versus insecurity, the known versus the unknown and the warmth of the UK family of nations versus an irreversible decision to separate," Mr Cameron said.

"And I think if the No campaign makes that argument, which is a mostly positive argument but is not frightened of calling out the Yes campaign on their totally failing to answer the question, then I'm sure we can secure the right result."
