Piers Corbyn has made an appearance at an anti-vax rally in Glasgow.

The demonstration, held in the city centre, saw protesters gather outside the Royal Concert Hall on Buchanan Street.

Piers, who is the brother of former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, has attended a number of anti-lockdown and anti-vaccination rallies in the last year.

He previously faced criminal charges for breaking lockdown rules following demonstrations in London, and has called coronavirus a “hoax”.

Over 47 million people in the UK have so far had their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine.

In Scotland, just over 4m people have been given their first jag, whilst around 3.4m have received their second dose.

Young people have been urged to get their coronavirus vaccines, with the JCVI last week advising that roll-out of the vaccination programme could be extended to 16 and 17-year-olds.
