Scotland says "NO"

Scotland rejects independence  with "NO" winning 55% of vote.

The "YES" campaign scored four big successes winning 53% in the largest city of Glasgow, 54% in West Dumbartonshire, 57% in Dundee and 51% in North Lanarkshire.

However, the "NO" campaign was victorious in 26 authorities.

Cameron and the Queen will both move to calm all tensions when they deliver statements on Friday. The written statement of the Queen will surely focus on reconciliation.
