Scotland would vote Yes to independence if another referendum were held today - just six weeks after a majority voted No, a poll has found.

Independence now has the backing of 52% of people in Scotland compared with 48% for the union, a YouGov poll for The Times has found.

When those who would not vote or do not know are included, the split is 49% for Yes and 45% for No, the poll of 1,078 Scottish adults between October 27 and 30 found.

Scotland voted 55% in favour of keeping the UK together in the referendum on September 18.

Two-fifths of people think a second poll will be held within the next ten years, slightly more (45%) want this to happen but 16% never want another one, the poll found.

It comes on the back of a separate Ipsos Mori poll for STV yesterday which found two-thirds of Scots want another independence referendum within the next 10 years while more than half think a vote on the country's future should take place within just five years.

Today's YouGov/Times poll also found 43% of Labour supporters now back independence, with only 22% saying Labour represents their interests well against 65% who said it represents them badly.

Data from the same poll released yesterday suggests the party is facing a near wipeout in Scotland, with the SNP enjoying a 16-point lead on Westminster voting intentions.

Scottish Labour leader Johann Lamont quit a week ago complaining that UK Labour treats Scotland like a "branch office".

New data released today suggests only 3% of people feel Scottish Labour has a lot of freedom to pursue different policies from the UK party, while a quarter said it has none at all.

Nearly three fifths of people (58%) said Ms Lamont was right to quit against 11% who said she was wrong.
