The revellers, believed to be French supporters here to see today’s Six Nations clash at Murrayfield, sat down in single file on the Royal Mile road.

With three traffic cones placed behind them to ensure an unsuspecting motorist didn’t try to park where they were sat, they encouraged members of the public to crowd-surf across the group.
