CROYDON'S MP's have welcomed the 'no' vote in the Scottish referendum.

Around 55 per cent of voters rejected Scottish independence, despite concern in the run-up to the poll that the 'yes' campaign was gaining momentum.

Steve Reed, Labour MP for Croydon North, and his Croydon Central counterpart, Tory Gavin Barwell, were both pleased with the result but agreed it showed changes were needed.

Mr Reed tweeted: "So pleased Scotland is staying with us, but after this vote change must come, not just in Scotland but in England too #bettertogether

He later added: "...no return to business as usual. We now need a constitutional convention for England to devolve power to our cities/regions."

Mr Barwell, also on Twitter, wrote: "Delighted Scotland voted to stay in UK. Now need to address concerns of 45% who voted 'Yes' & those of English voters to secure our Union."
