Scottish referendum too close to call as London offers more powers

EDINBURGH/LONDON (Reuters) - A surge in Scottish support for breaking away from the United Kingdom has made an independence vote in nine days too close to call, a poll showed on Tuesday, as London scrambled to shore up the 307-year union by pledging more autonomy to Scotland.

The number of people in the TNS poll saying they would vote "No" to independence fell to 39 percent from 45 percent a month ago while "Yes" support leapt to 38 percent from 32 percent.
