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

Cameron 'emotional and nervous' about Scotland vote

David Cameron has admitted he is "emotional and nervous" about the result of the Scottish independence referendum.

The Prime Minister told the Scottish Daily Mail: "The commentary has settled down, the argument is going better and I feel more confident. But it is a massive decision, so it’s right to be both emotional and nervous."

He also insisted there was no need for the 'No' campaign to switch tactics after the pro-independence side claimed they were reclaiming ground following the recent TV debates.

"I think what the No campaign must do is continue with the very clear argument made," the Prime Minister said.

"The No campaign provides certainty, clarity, and talks about how we’re safer, more prosperous, more secure together."
