THE European Commission has denied reporting the SNP to the police over the party's Brexit-night projection onto its main building.

It was widely reported earlier today that the light show, which featured the words "Scotland" and "Europe" connected by a love heart, had been "taken up" by the Belgian authorities after the commission's security team alerted them to the unauthorised projection.

The National:

On Brexit night, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon had shared an image of the SNP-arranged projection, adding: “The EU Commission building in Brussels tonight (and if you look carefully you’ll see that they do appear to have left a light on for us!)”.

This morning the EU Commissioner said while there was no issue with the message on the light, “it had nothing to do with us and it was simply a matter for the Belgian police”.

She added: “We are not in the business of being requested or granting authorisation for people outside projecting messages on our building.”

This afternoon, however, there was confusion over whether the commission really did report the projection to authorities.

Multiple journalists began to report that the commission hadn't reported the SNP to police at all.

On Twitter, STV political editor Colin Mackay wrote: "They say they dod [sic] not report the Scottish Government to the police because the light show was 'extremely short lived'."

And The Sun's Chris Musson posted a new update from the commission explaining why the issue had not been reported.

The spokesperson wrote: "The commission has and will continue to contact authorities in the event of unauthorised projections to have them stopped, on a general note. This particular incident was short-lived, so no actions were taken."

He explained that it seemed the "EU Commission spokeswoman at midday briefing had wrong end of stick".

However multiple media outlets had reported that the Scottish Government was being investigated by the police over the stunt.
