Sweet Sixteen star and former Greenock Morton player, Martin Compston is to host today's Yes Scotland launch in Edinburgh.
Speaking at the start of the event, Martin said: "When I was a wee boy growing up in Greenock, I was very aware of how frustrated the grown ups around me were because our country was ruled by a Conservative government that the people of Scotland had not voted for. Now I am grown up myself and we’re in the same situation all over again.
If there’s one great thing to happen in my life it will be the day that I know the future of Scotland and of her people is decided here in Scotland. And that is why I am saying Yes today. And why I will be saying Yes in Autumn 2014."
Martin will also read a special message from from Sir Sean Connery, setting out his support for an independent Scotland:
"This is a historic day for Scotland. The Yes campaign is centred on a positive vision for Scotland. It is rooted in inclusiveness,
equality and that core democratic value that the people of Scotland are the best guardians of their own future."
