Newsnight's special debate on Scottish independence

With one year to go until the Scottish independence referendum Newsnight hosted a special debate on the issue at the iconic Union Bridge on the England-Scotland border.

Joining Newsnight's Kirsty Wark on the stage were Deputy First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon, Shadow Secretary of State for Scotland Margaret Curran, founder of the Scottish Fashion Awards Tessa Hartman and musician and writer Pat Kane.

We were also joined by an audience of commentators, correspondents and voters who say they are still undecided about which way to go on the question of Scottish independence.

Here participants debate whether Scotland becoming independent is likely to have a positive or negative impact on its economy.
