Scottish town wants Irn-Bru birthplace mural and says Glasgow hijacked famous drink

A group of historians campaigning for a mural to be erected celebrating the original home of Irn-Bru claim the famous drink has been hijacked by Glasgow.

Initially named 'Irn Brew', Scotland's other national drink was launched in 1899 in a joint launch by AG Barr & Co (Glasgow) and Robert Barr (Falkirk).The drink was originally produced in Falkirk, near Stirling, with a colourful image daubed on the gable wall of the Cockburn Street building - which is now covered up by a billboard.
