Scotland has voted to remain part of the UK by a 55% to 45% majority, as the Better Together campaign won the historic referendum.

The result became a mathematical certainty just after 6am, when local authority Fife announced the 'No' campaign had won with 55% of its votes.

The final area to declare its results was Aberdeen, who again awarded Alistair Darling's pro-Union campaign the victory with 53% of the votes.

The 'Yes campaign' did win in four areas; West Dunbartonshire, Dundee, North Lanarkshire and Glasgow –the largest city in Scotland and the highest percentage of electorates.

Of these areas, Dundee gave the 'Yes' campaign the biggest majority with 57.35% of its 118,729 votes backing independence.

In the capital Edinburgh, 61.10% of its 378,012 elected against breaking up the 307-year Union.

Just over 3.6 million people voted in the referendum, - a turnout of 84.%, a record high of any election held in Britain since the introduction of universal suffrage in 1918. It dwarfs the percentage of people who voted in the last two general elections - 65.1% voted in 2010 and 61.4% in 2005.

Overall, 2,001,926 voted for Scotland to remain part if the UK, while 1,617,989 wanted to become independent.
