ALL MEPs who served Scotland in the European Parliament, from 1979 to the UK's departure from the EU in 2020, have been honoured in a tribute video. 

The European Parliament Office in Scotland's capital city created the video to pay homage to those who represented the country in Brussels.

The office, which works to increase public awareness of the European Parliament and its work in Scotland, thanked the MEPs for their service. 

Winnie Ewing, the first SNP MEP who served in the parliament from 1979-1999, was the first to appear in the two-minute video.

Scotland, and the rest of the UK, left the European Union on Friday - however the country will continue to follow EU rules for the duration of the transition period, which concludes at the end of 2020.

At the 2016 referendum on EU membership, Scotland had the highest percentage of Remain votes of any UK nation. Some 62% of Scots voted to stay in the bloc.

Last week a number of "Leave A Light On For Scotland" events took place around Scotland, which saw members of the public light candles and torches and sing together as 11pm, the time the UK officially left the EU, struck. 

The events symbolised Scotland's desire to return to the EU one day - for many, the hope that we will do so as an independent nation.
