Glasgow City Council has announced 28 road closures as thousands of marchers get set to descend upon the city for the annual Orange Walk.

Traffic chaos is expected in the city-centre tomorrow, Saturday, July 6, as drivers are restricted from travelling or loading/unloading on certain streets until 4pm.

Groups from across the city are expected to march towards Glasgow Green where thousands meet up every year and congregate. The organisers have urged those in attendance to conduct themselves 'with dignity and respect.'

Posting online Andy Murray from the Loyal Orange Institution of Scotland said: "It is crucial to conduct our celebrations with dignity and respect, ensuring the safety and well-being of all participants. Let us be mindful of our actions, demonstrating the exemplary conduct that our Institution stands for.

"I encourage each of you to partake in the festivities with joy and pride, cherishing the bonds that tie us together. May we continue to uphold the noble traditions of the Loyal Orange Institution, honouring our past while looking forward to a prosperous future."
