A Bloody Sunday memorial march has taken place in Glasgow this afternoon.

Early figures suggested around 600 members of Republican group West of Scotland Band Alliance were marching through Glasgow to "highlight what happened on Bloody Sunday in Derry" on January 30, 1972. 

A counter-protest was held by a far-right group, the National Defence League with 50 protesters gathering at Sauchiehall Street.
