Scotland would automatically leave the European Union if it split from the United Kingdom, Foreign Secretary William Hague has warned.

Hague said Scotland benefited enormously from the union but warned that voting in favour of independence would mean splitting from the world organisations the UK had signed up to.

"Scotland, of course, derives enormous benefit from being part of the United Kingdom. And the United Kingdom benefits enormously from Scotland being part of the United Kingdom.

"It is very important to understand that if Scotland left the United Kingdom, it would also be leaving the organisations the United Kingdom is a member of, including the European Union,“ Hague said as cited by the Scottish Daily Record.
