Scotland's day of reckoning arrives
With campaigning for the Scottish referendum over, more than four million registered voters will now decide today whether Scotland should leave, or remain as part of, the United Kingdom.
As the electoral process gets into full swing at 5,500 voting booths across the nation, organisers have braced themselves for a stiff logistical operation.
Throughout today, votes will be cast in 32 councils, with the results expected to start coming in the early hours of tomorrow.
The ‘Yes’ campaign has gained considerable support in these final weeks of campaigning but there are some who are concerned about the implications.
