"A row's brewing between the Scottish government and the UK government about plans for a vote to decide if Scotland should become independent. The First Minister of Scotland, Alex Salmond wants a public vote to take place in 2014. He's in favour of Scotland breaking away from the UK. But the Prime Minister, David Cameron, is against it and wants the vote earlier. The PM says the vote would be illegal without the UK government's support.
