Thousands march in Edinburgh in support of Scottish Independence 05/10/19

STV REPORT: More than 100,000 people are estimated to have attended a pro-Scottish independence march through the streets of Edinburgh.

Several pro-indy groups and organisations joined the All Under One Banner (AUOB) procession on Saturday afternoon.

Organisers have now estimated that more than 100,000 people took part in the event.

Gary Kelly, of AUOB, said: “It’s buzzing – the rain may be on but the people are not deterred.

“Our appetite for independence is still alive.”

Bands, bikers, dogs, people in fancy dress and countless Saltire flags were all part of the rally towards the Meadows. Chants of “What do we want? Independence” could also be heard roaring up the Royal Mile.

The march began at Holyrood Park at 1pm and began proceeding up the Royal Mile from there.
