Ed Miliband has urged Labour voters considering backing independence in the referendum to vote No so he can build a fairer Scotland within the UK.
The Labour leader travelled to Lanarkshire, where party founder Keir Hardie was born, to make a passionate plea ahead of the vote on 18 September.
Mr Miliband insisted it was his party, and not Alex Salmond's SNP, that would bring about the change the country needs.
"I know the way to get rid of this Tory government, that is to vote No and to elect a Labour government, and that is what I believe is going to happen," he said.
