Police Look Into Online 'Vote Sales'

Police have launched an investigation after a number of people apparently attempted to sell their votes in the independence referendum online.

Sellers' personal votes for September 18 were listed on internet auction site eBay, which has since removed the items.

A Glasgow user is reported to have sold their vote for £1.04 after offering buyers a ``unique piece of British history''.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "Police Scotland's priority is to ensure public safety and security. We will respond appropriately to any issues which arise.

"We are investigating these incidents and therefore cannot comment on the outcome of these incidents until all inquiries are concluded. Where other incidents are reported they will be investigated and appropriate action taken.''
