Scottish independence debate amps up

Scots will vote in September as to whether or not Scotland should separate from the UK.

    In just over six months, Scotland will vote on separating from the rest of Great Britain.

    On Tuesday, Scotland’s first minister Alex Salmond will once again outline the pro-independence case.

    An opinion poll in the last week suggested 61 per cent of people in England want Scotland to remain part of the UK. 

    Scotland will vote on the separation in September.
