Scotland votes to remain part of the United Kingdom, 55% voted saying “No” to reject Independence

Scotland has voted to remain part of the United Kingdom, as an army of “silent” No voters defeated an unprecedented challenge to the 307-year union.

With only two council areas to declare results, the No campaign was heading for a victory with a margin of 55 to 45 per cent. But the impact of the vote will trigger a major constitutional upheaval for the whole of the UK.
