#IndyRef: Watch live as Scotland makes history (VIDEO)


LIVE VIDEO: And now, we wait ... and British media say all the things they couldn't say all day.

Polls have officially closed in Scotland, where it's just past 10 p.m. Voting booths are still open, however, so that anyone who got in line before the deadline can cast their ballot.

With the close of the polls, UK residents can expect a sudden flood of information they've been spared all day.

Senior correspondent Corinne Purtill explains from Glasgow:

If you'd turned on a television in Britain just hours ago, you wouldn't know that one of the biggest moments in British electoral history is underway.

UK law forbids any reporting that could influence the election while the polls are open. No interviewing people outside polling stations, no stories on surprisingly high or low turnouts in particular strongholds, nothing. David Cameron could streak down Edinburgh's Royal Mile in nothing but a "Yes"-printed Speedo and it probably wouldn't be on the BBC until the polls close at 10 p.m. (This has not been confirmed, by the way.)
