Hundreds of counter-protesters have gathered to ‘protect statues’ at Glasgow’s George Square as Black Lives Matter activists demand the removal of a memorial to former PM Robert Peel.

Huge crowds of protesters could be seen occupying the square accompanied by a police escort.

The Glasgow Youth Art Collective called on Black Lives Matter activists to descend on the same location to demand the removal of the Sir Robert Peel statue.
