Scotland's First Minister, Alex Salmond, has downplayed US President Barack Obama's intervention in the debate over Scottish devolution, saying: "on the Richter scale of presidential interventions, this was pretty mild".

With 100 days to go until Scots vote in a referendum on independence from the United Kingdom, the SNP leader also said it would be "very foolish" to rely on pro-union promises of more powers for the devolved Scottish Parliament ahead of the referendum.
