NO SIDE MAINTAINS SLIM LEAD: LATEST POLL

The No campaign maintains a narrow lead on the Yes camp in the Scottish independence referendum, according to a new poll. When undecided voters are factored out, 54pc plan to vote No while 46pc intend to say Yes, according to a Survation poll commissioned by Better Together. The poll also found 40pc of voters believe they and their families would be financially worse off under independence compared to 27pc who believe they would be better off.

It comes after a Survation poll for the Daily Record on Tuesday found 53pc of Scots plan to vote No on September 18, with 47pc saying they will vote for independence, excluding undecided voters.

The latest survey also points to a very high turnout, with 93pc of voters saying they are certain to vote. Among those questioned, 40.8pc said they plan to vote Yes, 47.0pc intend to vote No, while 9pc were undecided and 3.2pc refused to say which side they would choose.

The telephone poll reached 1,044 people.
