POLICE Scotland have said that "no crimes" were recorded at an anti-gender reform protest outside the Scottish Parliament on Thursday. 

Hundreds of protesters, who the Scottish Family Party coined as the "anti-Sturgeon alliance", gathered outside Holyrood to call on the UK Government to step in and prevent the Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill from passing into law. 

The bill would make the process of changing gender in Scotland easier and faster, removing the need for a medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria. 

However, the UK Government has threatened to block royal assent of the bill in a move the SNP say threatens the devolution agreement. 

Counter protesters waving Pride flags also turned out to "challenge hate" and took part in a musical cabaret alongside the anti-gender reform protest.

But video recorded by The National showed one protester calling LGBT counter protesters "paedophiles" and "child molesters" before asking a police officer to arrest them. 

Scottish Government minister Patrick Harvie called on the Scottish Parliament and Police Scotland to "take urgent action" and "examine the video evidence" of the incident. 

But a spokesperson for Police Scotland told The National that "no crimes" were recorded at the event. 

They said: "Officers were in attendance at a protest and counter protest outside the Scottish Parliament on Thursday, 12 January, 2023.

"No complaints were received from any member of the public and no crimes were recorded.”

A spokesperson for the Scottish Parliament said they "recognise the importance of peaceful protest in a democratic society". 

"Matters of public order are for Police Scotland,” they added.
