POLICE are investigating claims that pro-independence campaigners Yes Scotland have had their e-mails hacked.

It is understood the alarm was raised after it was discovered e-mail content had been accessed by outsiders on several 
occasions.

Police Scotland confirmed the force had received a complaint and the matter was under investigation.

A spokesman for Yes Scotland said: “We can confirm that a complaint has been made to police regarding unauthorised access to Yes Scotland e-mail.”

Meanwhile, Labour’s former First Minister Henry McLeish, warned Scots could vote Yes to independence in next year’s referendum rather than remain in a “divided Britain” consumed by “greed and inequality”.

He accused the anti-independence Better Together campaign of being “thoroughly negative” and said it risked alienating Scots who would normally back the Union.
