ALL Under One Banner have been forced to cancel the rally planned for the Holyrood Parliament on Saturday, May 22.

The news comes after Nicola Sturgeon announced that Glasgow would be remaining in level 3 of Covid lockdown restrictions. This means travel into and out of the city is banned except for permitted purposes.

The group is hopeful that their next rally, planned for Bannockburn on June 26, will go ahead as planned.
