Scottish independence: Mass rallies mark referendum climax

BOTH sides in the Scottish referendum campaign have held rallies as they make their final efforts to win over undecided voters.

Independence supporters attended a mass event in the centre of Glasgow, where they were urged to "vote 'Yes' for a prosperous Scotland".

At the same time, pro-UK campaigners gathered nearby to insist the case for independence had not been made.

The latest polls have suggested the result is too close to call.

A Panelbase poll released on Wednesday afternoon, which was not carried out for any media outlet, suggested support for independence was on 48%, with 52% support for Scotland staying in the UK, once undecided voters were excluded.

This was the same figure as polls released on Tuesday evening by Opinium for the Daily Telegraph, another by ICM for the Scotsman and a third by Survation for the Daily Mail. - BBC News
