An independence rally is set to take place in Glasgow this afternoon outside the BBC Scotland offices.

Organised by pro-independence group All Under One Banner, the 'static rally' was initially planned for George Square.

It was moved to the BBC premises after the broadcaster announced they would no longer be airing all of the coronavirus briefings. 

The broadcaster will now decide whether to provide live TV coverage of the First Minister's briefings based on "editorial merit".

More than a thousand people have registered as interested or going on the demonstration's Facebook page. 

All attendees are being asked to register ahead of the event to ensure the demonstration can "take place safely". 

The registration form has now closed and those who did not register in time are asked to not attend.

Participants are also asked to wear face coverings, with antibacterial gel and gloves available at the rally. 

The static rally will take place at the Pacific Quay from 5.30pm and will feature several speakers. 

According to the Scottish Government's coronavirus guidance, outdoor gatherings should include no more than six people.
