Two protesters from the environmental group This Is Rigged have been charged in connection with a breach of the peace at the Scottish ceremony to make the coronation of King Charles.

Police Scotland arrested the activists after they allegedly attempted to climb over a crowd safety barrier on the Royal Mile yesterday.

The force said their arrests were later changed to a Recorded Police Warning.

One man was arrested for theft, while another was arrested in connection with an outstanding warrant.
