Scottish independence: Pound and shares rise on 'No' vote
The pound has hit a two-year high against the euro and a two-week high against the US dollar, as Scotland voted against independence.
The FTSE 100 share index also opened higher, rising 0.7% to 6,860.
The head of the CBI business lobby group, John Longworth, told the BBC's Simon Jack that "very many businesses in Scotland will be mightily relieved" with the result.
