AROUND 80 folk marched through the centre of Lerwick on Saturday to voice their support for a ‘people’s vote’ on Brexit.
Banners such as ‘Put it to the people’ and ‘Ask us’ were hold aloft as locals of all ages walked from the Market Cross to the Town Hall.
Among the walkers included Shetland MSP Tavish Scott and NHS Shetland chairman Gary Robinson.
The march took place on the same day a similar event was held in London.
The slogan for the national people’s vote campaign proclaims that “they can not, must not and will not force this broken Brexit on the British people without giving us the final say”.
