Referendum campaigns argue over NHS in BBC debate

Supporters and opponents of independence argued over the best way to protect the NHS during the BBC's Big, Big Debate in Glasgow.

The audience of 16 and 17-year-old first-time voters at Glasgow's SSE Hydro arena was drawn from secondary schools across Scotland.
