David Cameron has made an impassioned plea to keep Scotland part of the union, saying he would be “heartbroken” if the UK was torn apart.

During a visit to Scottish Widows offices in Edinburgh, the Prime Minister said he cared “far more about his country than his party”.

Mr Cameron, Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband are all in Scotland on separate visits in a bid to persuade Scots to vote No to independence on September 18, offering instead a fast-tracked timetable for further devolution.

Mr Cameron said: “I care far more about my country than I do about my party.

“I care hugely about this extraordinary country, this United Kingdom that we’ve built together

“I would be heartbroken if this family of nations that we’ve put together was torn apart.”
