Activists gathered outside St Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh to protest against multiple arrests that have happened amid ceremonies for King Charles and the late Queen.

The group were pictured on the Royal Mile carrying “blank canvases” as members of the public continued to file into the place of worship to pay their respects to the late monarch on Tuesday afternoon.

Douglas Rogers, 27, said he was taking part in the protest to “stand in solidarity with those who have been arrested protesting the monarchy”.

In the last few days, several arrests have been made in relation to disturbances during royal ceremonies.
