Scottish independence: 'People of Scotland are winning,' says Salmond

Scotland's First Minister, Alex Salmond, has dismissed as ''a panic measure" plans to give Scotland greater autonomy, if voters decide to stay in the UK.

The proposals, revealed by Chancellor George Osborne, come after one opinion poll suggested a narrow majority in favour of Scottish independence, in the referendum in less than two week's time.

But Mr Salmond said the plans could not be taken seriously at such a late stage.

''The whole Westminster elite are losing the referendum campaign, and the people of Scotland are winning it,'' he added.
