Station DJ and breakfast show host Graham Mack intorduced the ban on his show.

He said: “I’ve had enough of this! You’ll walk 500 hundred miles, but you don’t want anything to do with England? After all we’ve done for you!

“From now on, this radio station is banning anything Scottish, that includes music by ALL Scottish artists! Until further notice, BOB fm is now Scot Free!”

A spokesman for Better Together said: “In a week where major banks have said they plan to move business to England, this is probably not the biggest issue affecting people in Scotland.”
