A FINAL tribute has been paid to key workers across Glasgow as neighbours and strangers took to the streets one last time to cheer. 

Glaswegians of all ages came together for Clap For Carers tonight at 8pm in a touching tribute to the city's heroes fighting Covid-19 on the frontlines. 

The movement, which began as a viral post in late March, has seen millions across the country join together to applaud, cheer, sing, and dance all in recognition of the efforts of those going the extra mile for others. 

Glasgow Times:

People across the city, including staff at the Queen Elizabeth University Hosital, paid tribute one final time this evening. 

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Prime Minister Boris Johnson were also among those who took part tonight. 

Glasgow MSP Ms Sturgeon wrote: "As we take the first small steps out of lockdown, it’s all the more important that we remember the toll of this virus and the extraordinary efforts of health & care staff to look after us.

"So tonight, an extra special thanks from me to them." 

The event, in its 10th week, is due to end because its founder Annemarie Plas said it was better to stop when it was at 'its peak'.

Glasgow Times:

“I think it’s good to have the last of the series next Thursday (May 28), because to have the most impact I think it is good to stop it at its peak," she said. 

“Without getting too political, I share some of the opinions that some people have about it becoming politicised.

"I think the narrative is starting to change and I don’t want the clap to be negative."
