PEOPLE across Scotland made some noise for our NHS frontline workers as part of the “Clap for our Carers” celebration.

The show of support for those fighting the coronavirus pandemic on Thursday night was inspired by similar scenes witnessed across Europe in recent weeks.

In Scotland, the First Minister said she took part in the celebration from Scottish Government HQ – while in cities, tenement buildings came alive with the sound of applause.

In Oban, pipers from the local World-Championship-winning pipe band even played from their doorsteps to show solidarity with NHS workers during the crisis.

And across the rest of the country there were fireworks, cheering, singing and more.

The First Minister tweeted in support of the frontline staff and thanked them for their work.

And in Oban we heard a little from the Oban High School Pipe Band, who were inviting pipers around the country to take part in their performance. 

On the Clyde, BAE Systems blared ships' horns as local Glasgow residents cheered.

And in Edinburgh the sound of applause echoed through the streets. 

More footage from Glasgow revealed similar scenes. 

And although The National team is working from home, we took part from our respective workspaces!
