North East more pro-independence that the Scottish, online map shows

Poll by our sister website Us vs Th3m suggests folk living in the region are more keen on a yes vote than those north of the border

North East folk are more pro-independence that the Scots, according to an online poll.

Our sister website, Us vs Th3m, created an online map which plots whether people support the idea of Scotland becoming a separate country.

In the NE postcode area, some 59% of people said yes, they did support independence - compared to only 46% of Scots.

The UK average was 47% yes, 53% no.

Everyone who clicks to vote is mapped with a dot in their postcode area - red for no, and blue for yes.

It shows how areas like the South East are strongly anti-independence while Wales, Northern Ireland and large swathes of the North East are for it.

Scotland - unsurprisingly given the raft of close-run official opinion polls in recent weeks - is very mixed, with lots of yes votes around Glasgow and Edinburgh but more nos in rural areas.
