A petition alleging the Scottish independence referendum was rigged has now received more than 70,000 signatures.

Many were still refusing to accept the no vote had won and were demanding a revote following the referendum on Thursday.

Kirstie Keatings, who started the petition on change.org, appealed to first minister Alex Salmond.

She wrote: ‘Countless evidences of fraud during the recent Scottish Referendum have come to light, including two counts of votes being moved in bulk into a No pile, Yes votes clearly being seen in no piles and strange occurences [sic] with dual fire alarms and clear cut fraud in Glasgow.

‘We demand a revote be taken of said referendum, where each vote shall be counted by two individuals, one of whom should be an international impartial party without a stake in the vote.’

The ‘examples’ of vote rigging have been rejected, with Salmond earlier stating the vote was democratic before he announced he would resign.
