Scottish independence activists based in Germany have staged a rally in support of another referendum in Berlin.

The speeches and music were held outside the Reichstag building and were organised by little-known campaigning group “Germans for Scottish Independence”.

The star attraction was controversial former MSP and Solidarity leader Tommy Sheridan, who was instrumental in holding a number of rallies in Glasgow’s George Square.

Sheridan was picture on social media speaking in front of a pro-independence sign adorned with a unicorn that read: “Rip the chains from the unicorn - show them that Scotland is brave!”

The rally came as it was reported this week that two German political parties had urged EU leaders to give Scotland a clear path back to membership if the country votes for independence.
