Scottish referendum: Alex Salmond says 'No' voters were 'tricked'

Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond has said "No" voters in last week's independence referendum were "tricked" by a late vow of more devolved powers.

He accused the three main party leaders of "reneging" on the pledge they made days before Thursday's referendum which he claimed won the "No" vote.

Voters in Scotland rejected independence by 55% to 45%.

No 10 dismissed his claims, as the three parties continue to disagree over handling the process of devolution.

It comes as about 1,000 people, including politicians from across the divide, prepare to attend a service of reconciliation at St Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh.
Tight timetable

Prime Minister David Cameron, Labour leader Ed Miliband and Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg all vowed before the referendum that Scotland would be given additional powers if it rejected independence.

Under the plans, the legislation would be delivered by whichever government comes into office at next year's general election.

A motion to be laid before the UK parliament by the three parties on Monday sets out steps to deliver further devolution to Scotland within a tight timetable.

Downing Street insisted the timetable would be followed, while Better Together campaign leader Alistair Darling said it was non-negotiable.

But there is continuing disagreement between the three Westminster parties over how the process of devolution should be handled.

David Cameron wants changes to move in tandem with plans to make sure only English MPs can vote on English laws - but Labour wants a slower process with further debate.

The Lib Dems have warned Mr Cameron's decision to link the issues could see him forced to renege on his promise to the people of Scotland.
