Hundreds of people have turned up to an anti-face mask protest outside an Edinburgh parliament building.

The group Saving Scotland, a “grassroots health movement” is organised the event, which is aimed at protesting the mandatory face covering rule and putting an end to lockdown restrictions.

Members believe lockdown is more harmful than the virus itself.

About 500 to 600 people are believed to have attended the event, many of whom were carrying signs with anti-lockdown and anti-mask slogans.

Here are some photos of protesters on the day:
