A LEADING member of the Labour movement has switched his backing from No to Yes in the independence campaign.

Councillor Stephen Dornan said he believes it is the only way to fully protect Scotland's National Health Service.

Mr Dornan said: "Our health service is a brilliant institution. It doesn't matter if you're penniless or a millionaire - health will take priority, not your income, but it can only be protected if Scotland votes Yes next month.

"With a No vote, we will be paying for our own healthcare within just a matter of years."
