UK Prime Minister David Cameron said it couldn’t be business as usual in Britain.

“Now it is time for our United Kingdom to come together and to move forward. A vital part of that would be a balanced settlement, fair to people in Scotland and importantly to everyone in England, Wales and Northern Ireland as well.” – Prime Minister David Cameron

David Cameron said that the promises he made about granting more powers to Scotland would be honored. He added that parts of the U.K., such as Wales and Northern Ireland, may also get the same. CCTV’s Catherine Drew reports from London.
