Private Eye editor Ian Hislop has backed what he terms "an extraordinarily successful" union between Scotland and the rest of the UK.

The Have I Got News For You regular, who has a Scottish father and English mother, said the countries would benefit more from staying together.

He told BBC Radio 5 live's Richard Bacon: "If you lose bits of it, it works less well. [Power] becomes concentrated in the south-east of England or concentrated in one small area."
