Scottish vote awakens Brexit fears

EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND - SEPTEMBER 18: A young girl has her photograph taken as people wait for a result outside the Scottish Parliament as voting in the referendum continues on September 18, 2014 in Edinburgh, Scotland. After many months of campaigning the people of Scotland today head to the polls to decide the fate of their country. The referendum is too close to call but a 'Yes' vote would see the break-up of the United Kingdom and Scotland would stand as an independent country for the first time since the formation of the Union.
