They may not have walked 500 miles, but The Proclaimers were still suitably impressed with Glasgow's new live arena.

Craig and Charlie Reid, famous for anthems I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) and I'm On My Way, dropped by the new Hydro project outside the SECC in Glasgow yesterday.

The twin brothers, from Edinburgh, will become the first Scottish-based act to play the arena when they take to the stage on October 12.

The new dome is expected to host up to 140 live acts per year.
