Prime Minister David Cameron has said he passionately believes that Scotland should remain in the UK. Speaking from Olympic Park, Mr Cameron said:
"I believe passionately that it is in their interests to stay in the United Kingdom. [...] We would be deeply diminished without Scotland. This matters to all of the UK."
Ahead of his speech in this morning in London, Prime Minister David Cameron tweeted the message he wanted the rest of the UK to send to Scotland.
David Cameron is "cowardly" for encouraging unity from London and not debating Scottish independence in Edinburgh, the deputy first minister of Scotland has said.
Nicola Sturgeon said the speech was a sign of the "jitters" running through the No vote camp.
Everyone living in the United Kingdom will be "profoundly affected" by outcome of the Scottish independence referendum, David Cameron is expected to say in a speech later today.
Speaking from the Olympic stadium, the Prime Minister will argue that the UK is a "powerful brand" in the modern world, with a global reputation for being "unique, brilliant, creative, eccentric, ingenious".
David Cameron will use a speech later today to ask the people of the United Kingdom who do not live in Scotland to issue a message of unity to their friends north of the border.
The Prime Minister is expected to steer the Better Together campaign towards a more positive message of "we want you to stay".
Mr Cameron will urge the English, Welsh and Northern Irish to do whatever they can to influence the outcome, telling them: "You don't have a vote, but you do have a voice."
The speech will be given at the Olympic stadium as the PM wanted to symbolise the unity of the 2012 Team GB, which won 65 medals and came third overall.
With seven months to go to the poll, the outcome remains "up in the air", the Prime Minister is expected to say.
