Scotland took a step back in a heated bid for independence with 55 per cent voting against breaking up with United Kingdom, holding together its 307-year old union.
The official victory for the No side came after eight hours of vote counting in 32 local councils across Scotland, when the region of Fife turned in enough No votes to give a clear majority to the side that campaigned to keep Scotland as part of the United Kingdom.
