The price of the pound sterling has fallen to its lowest level in 10 months following the result of a YouGov poll on Scottish Independence.

The pound fell 1% on Asian markets to $1.6165 and almost 1% against the euro to €1.2527.

It comes after a YouGov poll suggested the 'Yes' campaign in the Scottish referendum debate had gained a narrow lead. It was the first poll to show the 'Yes' campaign having a lead and sparked a number of political measures by the 'No' campaign.

The poll, published by the Sunday Times, suggested that 51% of those who said they have made their mind up will be voting 'Yes', compared to 49% who said they will vote 'No'.

The Scottish public will vote 'Yes' or 'No' on the referendum question "Should Scotland be an independent country?" on 18 September.
