The first results are coming in for the referendum to decide whether Scotland should stay in the UK or become an independent country.

Clackmannanshire was the earliest to declare, with "No" winning 19 thousand 036 votes and "Yes" on 16 thousand 350 on an 89% turnout.

Counting will be carried out through the night, with individual results announced for each of Scotland's 32 local authority areas.

A "Yes" vote in the ballot would end the 307-year-old union between Scotland and the rest of the UK.
