Claims of 'intimidation'.
POLITICAL optimism was tempered by allegations of polling station intimidation in Scotland.
Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson took to Twitter with allegations of voter intimidation in Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale, where Scotland's only Tory MP, David Mundell, is hoping for a return to Westminster.
She said: "Disturbing reports of people being turned away from an Annan polling station by burly blokes if they say they don't support a certain party."
Scottish Labour leader Jim Murphy said "the sun is shining and there is a huge amount of energy and confidence" in the party as he voted in the East Renfrewshire constituency he has represented since 1997.
