Scotland Decides: how the referendum played out on the front pages

The Scottish independence vote has held the United Kingdom in thrall this week. With some 97 per cent of the population turning out to have their say, it’s an emotional decision for many and one that could have big ramifications, economically and socially, for the nation and the empire with which it may part. Front pages across the UK reflected the emotions running high on both sides of the debate.
