Thousands of people are expected to march through Edinburgh to protest against public sector cuts.

Union group the STUC has arranged the rally to demonstrate against measures in the UK government‘s Spending Review.

On Wednesday, Chancellor George Osborne announced the most wide-ranging cuts in public spending for decades.

Union leaders said they had been “overwhelmed” by the response from members to the protest rally. People from across Scotland are expected.

At least 100 buses will carry demonstrators from all across Scotland to the march through Princes Street before a rally at the Ross Bandstand in Princes Street Gardens.
