MORE than 4,000 people took to the streets of Glasgow today to participate in the annual Orange Walk parade.

The main County Grand Orange Order parade began at George Square and followed a route taking in St Vincent Street, Blythswood Square, Nelson Mandela Place, George Street, High Street and Saltmarket.

The marchers were bound for Glasgow Green, where an afternoon rally was held.

Police Scotland carried out a total of eight arrests for a string of minor public disorder offences.

This figure was down from the 18 arrested at the same event last year.
