Nigel Farage was met by hundreds of protesters as he visited Edinburgh to canvas for the upcoming European elections.

Inside the venue, Mr Farage said his party was "on course" to win at least one Scottish seat in the European Parliament.

He claimed the SNP's pro-European leader Alex Salmond was "pretty scared" of Ukip's arguments in favour of leaving the European Union.
