A TEENAGER has been appointed as the latest member of the board of Scotland’s pro-independence campaign group.

Ellie Koepplinger, 16, will sit alongside politicians and public figures on the Yes Scotland advisory board as it attempts to deliver a yes vote in the 2014 referendum.

Ms Koepplinger, who lives in Maryhill, Glasgow, is a fifth-year pupil at Hillhead High School in the city’s west end.

She was chosen for the position from a flood of applications after Yes Scotland advertised for a 16 or 17-year-old to join the board.

“I am just so excited and thrilled that I have been given this chance,” she said.
