People in Lancashire are being given the chance to discuss the impact of Scottish independence on the North.

The New Continental pub in South Meadow Lane, Preston is hosting the discussion at 7pm on Tuesday.

The event is being organised by groups including the Hannah Mitchell Foundation, which has been formed to campaign for devolution in the North of England. Speakers will include Robin McAlpine, director of the Jimmy Reid Foundation, Prof Paul Salveson, director of the Hannah Mitchell Foundation, and Jenny Nelson of Red Pepper.

Prof Salveson said: “We are delighted to take part in this important debate. More and more people in the North of England recognise that we are being marginalised in British politics and we need some of the powers which Scotland, Wales and even London already have. Whatever the outcome of the referendum, the North needs to get its act together and unite behind a vision of a new, dynamic and inclusive North.”
