SPS politics experts on air for Independence Referendum results

Political scientists from the School of Social and Political Science are in high demand to provide running media commentary on the results of the historic Scottish Independence Referendum.

Once the polling stations close tonight, you can follow our SPS experts on air: James Mitchell (STV), Charlie Jeffery (BBC 1 Scotland), Nicola McEwen ( Radios 4 and 5 Live), Ailsa Henderson (BBC World Service) and Alan Convery (CNN).

They are all key members of the ESRC Future of the UK and Scotland Centre (based at University of Edinburgh), which overnight will be reporting developments online at and on twitter @UKScotland offering instant comment on key events and publishing hourly updates on where things stand from 6am on Friday morning.
