A scuffle broke out on George Square in Glasgow between protesters and the police following Scotland’s independence referendum on Friday.

Supporters of the 'Yes' and the 'No' campaign both gathered at the square, chanting and waving flags. Some lit flares and sang songs. Shortly after the gathering, a scuffle broke out and a police officer was shoving protesters who fled the scene. The police then built a line two separate the two different camps form one another. No arrests have been reported.

84.15 percent of eligible voters took part in the referendum and decided against independence with 55.3% voting to stay with the United Kingdom and 44.7% against it. Scotland’s first minister, Alex Salmond , who had pushed for the referendum, has since resigned.
