Details of Scotland - 18 Jul 2014
Scottish separatists are closing the gap on their unionist rivals as a September independence referendum draws nearer, according to a poll on Friday. But pollster TNS said it would still be a "major task" for them to draw level in time. In a poll of 995 adults, TNS found that support for the pro-independence campaign had grown by two points to 32 percent compared with last month, while the campaign to reject independence had slipped back a point to 41 percent. In the run-up to the vote, Reuters photographer Suzanne Plunkett took a series of close-up pictures of food, drink and various objects typically associated with Scotland.
