WEARSIDE MP Sharon Hodgson has called for unity after Scotland’s No vote.

Speaking after the result of the Scottish independence referendum, the Washington and Sunderland west MP said: “I’m delighted that the people of Scotland have made the right choice.

“The SNP and Alex Salmond simply never had the answers to the important questions about how a separated Scotland would function, and Scottish voters have rightly decided that their future is brighter within a strong United Kingdom.

“I hope that the division that this debate has opened in Scotland can now be healed, and both sides can accept the result and work together in the interests of Scotland and the wider UK.”
