Poll shows Scottish Independence vote narrowing

The Scottish Independence 'no vote' has collapsed to just a six point lead compared to a 22 point lead less than a month ago, a new poll has found.

Now 53% of those questioned would vote 'No' compared to 47% for the 'Yes' camp, with 'Don't know' responses stripped from the YouGov/The Sun poll.

With opinions hardening, some 85% say they are certain to vote, which is up from 82% on August 15.
