Scottish Labour has defended its latest promotional video after Twitter users claimed parts of it were filmed in Wales.

The video was posted to the party's social media on Wednesday, depicting Scottish leader Richard Leonard outlining their vision for Scotland.

It features a towering mountain range with picturesque scenery, but Twitter users were quick to claim the piece was filmed in Wales, not Scotland.

Sarah Mackie (@lumi_1984) said the party must have taken footage in Snowdonia, a region in northwest Wales which is concentrated around Snowdonia National Park.

She wrote: "Labour's Scottish Branch Office doing a *wonderful* job of showcasing Scotland's fabulous landscape in their latest PPB. Oh, wait...that's actually Snowdonia. In Wales."

Other users flocked to Labour's original post to voice their concerns.

Paul Cochrane (@mrdissent) said: "I was wondering about that…initially thought 'Glencoe…no….that doesn't look like Scotland…'."

An SNP spokesperson said: “This is pretty embarrassing for Richard Leonard – it’s hard to shake off Scottish Labour’s ‘branch office’ reputation when they can’t tell Snowdonia from Scotland.”

Scottish Labour confirmed that promotional videos for both Scottish Labour and UK Labour were shot on locations across the country, including in Edinburgh and Glasgow, to reflect the fact that Labour is a UK-wide party.

A spokesperson for Scottish Labour said: "As Richard states in the film, this is our vision for Scotland and for the whole of the UK, because the urgent need to get rid of the Tories and elect a Labour government that will end austerity doesn't stop at the border with England."

Scottish Labour have been approached for confirmation of the filming location.
