The Prime Minister formally refused to go head-to-head with Scotland’s First Minister in a televised debate on the independence referendum.

The issue is a matter for “Scots living in Scotland” and should not become a glorified general election, David Cameron wrote in a letter to Alex Salmond.

Any TV debate should instead involve Alistair Darling, the Labour MP leading the Better Together campaign to keep Scotland in the United Kingdom, he claimed.
