U.K. offers perks if Scotland stays

(CNN) – Voters in Scotland go to the polls Rhursday for an unprecedented vote on whether to leave the United Kingdom.

A yes vote would mark the end of more than 300 years of union, and would lead to a host of questions about issues ranging from the use of the British pound to the basing of nuclear submarines.

Opinion polls are split right down the middle, and it's impossible to predict which way undecided voters will break.

The tight race has drawn leading British politicians north of the border, where they're offering perks if the Scots vote to stay, and are warning they'll be no do over if they vote to separate.

Just what is the British government offering if the Scots agree to stay?

CNN's Max Foster reports.
