Alex Salmond: 'Modest progress' made at independence referendum talks

Help

Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond has said "modest progress" was made during discussions with Scottish Secretary Michael Moore over the proposed independence referendum.

Mr Salmond said two main areas of disagreement between the two governments remained - over the number of questions to be asked and whether 16 and 17-year-olds are allowed to vote in the ballot.

The first minister is due to meet Prime Minister David Cameron on Thursday.
