Pranksters set up fake passport checkpoint at Scottish border

Scots vote tomorrow on whether they'll split from the United Kingdom.

What's the likely outcome?

Opinion polls suggest that voters will narrowly reject independence but as the historic referendum looms, no one quite knows which way things will turn out.

If the outcome is yes, Scotland will separate from Britain for the first time since 1707. Expect a major change in economic and political dealings.

But a few locals are not letting the heavy issue weigh them down. Instead, they've opted for a more light-hearted touch: By pulling a prank on unsuspecting drivers at the border of England and Scotland.

So they set up a fake passport checkpoint and actually stopped people.

The joke's meant to ease mounting tension between the yes and no to independence.

Hopefully, someone got a kick out of it.
