A survey found 60% believe both Yes and No camps have not been truthful about the consequences of independence.

Two-thirds of No voters (67%) believe both campaigns have been partial with the truth while less than half of all Yes voters (48%) felt the same.

Almost three-quarters (70%) were also unsure of the campaigns' ability to accurately estimate the true consequences of independence.

The ICM survey of more than 2,000 Scots found 56% overall and 70% of No supporters believe no-one really knows whether an independent Scotland could join the EU.
