Four men have been charged following an anti-lockdown march in Edinburgh’s city centre.
The demonstration took place outside the Scottish Parliament before protesters gathered outside Bute House on Saturday afternoon.
Under current coronavirus restrictions, marches are considered illegal and people alleged to be involved can face criminal charges.
Police confirmed four men, aged 37, 31, 53, had all been charged in connection with the incident and will appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court at a later date.
Chief inspector Murray Starkey said: “Today people marched in contravention of legislation.
“We would urge people to find alternative ways to protest, such as online and on social media.
“Our approach throughout the pandemic has been to engage with the public, explain the legislation and guidance, and encourage compliance, only using enforcement as a last resort.
“Our response today has been measured and appropriate.”
