Voting has finished in the historic referendum on Scottish independence, with the future of the 307-year-old Union hanging in the balance.
As the huge task of counting up to 4million votes is gets underway in 32 council areas, a senior Yes campaigner said the result would be 'nerve-wracking', while an insider in the Better Together campaign said they could 'promise' it would be a No vote.
After almost three years of bitter campaigning, warnings of economic catastrophe and allegations of intimidation, threats and downright lies, the two camps can do no more.
Alex Salmond's political career has built to this moment, but the fate of his nationalist dream is now sealed, with the final result expected at breakfast time. David Cameron is also under intense pressure, with the risk of going down in history as the Prime Minister put the Union in peril.
Tonight Buckingham Palace said the Queen is following the results 'closely', with senior aides expected to meet from 1am to discuss her official response to the verdict of the people of Scotland.
