Thousands of independence supporters took to the streets of Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow, on Sunday as polls showed the rival camps running desperately close just five days before a referendum which could bring the break-up of the United Kingdom.
Separatist and unionist leaders worked across the country to woo undecided voters among the four million people Scots and Scotland residents who will vote on their future on Thursday.
Scottish National Party leader Alex Salmond, who has spearheaded the drive for independence, said he was confident the “Yes” campaign would win.
“We’re not aiming to win by one vote. We’re aiming to achieve a substantial majority if we can,” he said on the BBC.
