UK says "No" to voting change

UK voters have rejected a change to the voting system.

More than 9.8m people voted to keep the first-past-the-post system, more than 50 per cent of the votes cast, the BBC said.

Counting continues but the No vote is set to get 69 per cent support, meaning a decisive rejection of a move to the alternative vote system.

Meanwhile the SNP has sealed an historic victory, winnning a majority in the Scottish Parliament.
