The Scottish government is proposing to give the vote to 16 and 17-year-olds in the independence referendum, prompting the question whether the voting age of 18 should be lowered in other parts of the UK.

Giles Dilnot asked students and shoppers for their vote in a Daily Politics unscientific mood box poll.
