Reading Time: < 1 minute

Tens of Thousands of people have marched in Glasgowin the largest show of support for Scottish independence since Nicola Sturgeon said she would introduce legislation to hold a second referendum on the issue.

The All Under One Banner (AUOB) event set off from Kelvingrove Park at 1.30pm and passed through the city before finishing at Glasgow Green for a rally.

AUOB was hopeful that 100,000 would attend the march. While the exact figure is unknown, it is believed the 100,000 goal has been surpassed.

Some people joined in with the crowds of marchers waving Saltires as the event passed along the city streets.

An organiser for the All Under One Banner event said: “The people of Scotland demand that Scotland regains full independence from London rule and so we march in our tens of thousands at Glasgow this Saturday to declare this so, and to state that it is we the people who are in charge, not the English parliament 500 miles away.

“Scotland is on the rise and the end of the UK is nigh as we are taking our country back, and we are taking it now.”
