PLANS to devolve more powers to Scotland inside the UK will be unveiled within days after a poll put the Yes camp ahead in the run up to the referendum on Scottish independence.

Chancellor George Osborne said the final touches were being put to proposals for “much greater” fiscal autonomy and tax-raising abilities.

The Scottish Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the people of Scotland would not be fooled by an offer of more powers for Holyrood from Unionist parties.

She spoke out after a YouGov poll for the Sunday Times put the pro-independence campaign ahead by 51 per cent to 49 per cent, when undecided voters are excluded.
