Scottish independence: JK Rowling speaks about Scottish independence

JK Rowling has donated £1m to the pro-union Better Together campaign.

A statement on her website said she respected both sides of the debate but that independence carried serious risks.

In 2012, during an interview with BBC arts editor Will Gompertz, Ms Rowling spoke of her reservations about an independent Scotland.

She said: "Scotland's doing great under devolution .... I would be personally quite averse to doing anything to destabilise that in the next few years."
