SNP conference: Salmond says independence vote 'not about SNP'

12 April 2014 Last updated at 17:23 BST

Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond has told his party conference that a vote for independence is not a vote for the SNP.

In his address he made it clear to delegates that a first independent Scottish government could well be run by Labour, or a coalition.

But he added that a "Yes" vote meant Scotland would never be overseen by a Tory government it did not vote for.

His comments come ahead of the 18 September vote on Scotland's future.
