OLDER voters saved the union by seeing off a late charge by the Yes campaign in Scotland’s referendum, polling by Tory donor Lord Ashcroft suggested yesterday.

His survey found that a massive 73 per cent of over-65s — who are among the most likely to vote — ticked the No box in Thursday’s referendum, stymying the late swing to Yes, with a majority of 16 to 54-year-olds backing a breakaway.

A stunning 21 per cent of Yes voters said they made up their mind some time in the last week of the campaign — including 8 per cent who backed Yes on polling day. That compared with just 6 per cent of voters who were swayed to No in the final days.
