The show of support came following the news that Scotland’s first minister Nicola Sturgeon has secured a meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, as she embarks on a bid to keep Scotland in the European Union.

Waving placards sporting slogans such as “Scotland we believe in EU” and “Don’t EU forget about me”, the Remain supporters waved EU and Scotland flags in a bid to show the rest of the EU that Scotland still wishes to remain in the Union.

Some supporters also took the chance to have a pop at Leave campaigner Boris Johnson while others showed their support for Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
