Protesters have gathered in Glasgow to stand against Boris Johnson’s first Scotland visit since becoming Prime Minister.

The newly-elected PM is traveling throughout the country to announce hundreds of millions of pounds of funding for parts of the UK.

Dozens of campaigners took to the steps of the Royal Concert Hall on Buchanan Street at 9am on Monday ahead of his visit.

They carried placards bearing the Prime Minister’s face, and chanted the message: “Boris, Boris, Boris; out, out, out.”

Organisers the Radical Independence Campaign say today marks the beginning of a 'rolling plan of action' against the Prime Minister.

"We're here to make our opposition known to Boris Johnson," explained Jonathon Shafi, co-organiser of Monday's protest.

"His brand of politics has no place anywhere in the United Kingdom, and anywhere here in Scotland.

"What we've done here is show that Boris Johnson will not be able to come to Scotland without there being protests."

The group plan to hold a series of protests, demonstrations, and events to make clear they will 'not accept being ruled over'.

It comes just weeks after Glaswegians took to the streets to protest against the PM's election in June.

Rockers Primal Scream also dared the Tory MP to come to Glasgow after sharing a video of a not-so-favourable welcome to Manchester.

Ahead of his visit, Boris Johnson called for a renewal of “the ties that bind our United Kingdom”.

He said: "Our Union is the most successful political and economic union in history.

"We are a global brand and together we are safer, stronger and more prosperous."

He is expected to hold talks in Edinburgh with Ruth Davidson later today - and the nature of those talks could set the tone for Johnson's future dealings with Scotland and even his confidence in his majority in the House of Commons.

Scottish Secretary Alister Jack hailed the PM's plans, and said: “It’s really great news that the Prime Minister is committed to ensuring that every part of Scotland benefits from UK Government Growth Deals."
