Prime Minister David Cameron will not stand down if Scotland votes to go independent.

Speaking to reporters during a visit in Fleet, Hampshire, he said he would leave it to voters at next year's general election to decide his future.

He said: "My name is not on the ballot paper. What's on the ballot paper is 'does Scotland want to stay in the United Kingdom, or does Scotland want to separate itself from the United Kingdom?'.

"That's the only question that will be decided on Thursday night. The question about my future will be decided at the British general election coming soon."
