Cameron "worried" about Scottish independence push after a Brexit

British Prime Minister David Cameron says he is worried that a vote to leave the European Union could spur a push for a second referendum on Scottish independence.

"I do worry about a second Scottish referendum if we leave," Cameron tells a live televised question-and-answer programme ahead of a vote on a British EU exit, or Brexit, on June 23.

Fifty-five per cent of voters opposed independence for Scotland in the first referendum in 2014.
