An estimated 10,000 beer cans have been cleared from Trafalgar Square during an "almighty clean-up" after kilt-clad Scottish football fans descended on it ahead of last night's match against England.
While Scotland suffered a 3-2 defeat in the friendly game, Westminster City Council said it triumphed over litter, as well as finding "one or two weary Scotsmen" still in the square this morning.
The council began the clean-up operation at 6.30pm yesterday with a team of 20 workers, and it was being completed at 8.30am this morning - clearing an estimated two tonnes of beer cans.
Trucks that hold 18 tonnes of rubbish, street sweepers and small cleaning buggies were all involved in the operation.

Washing-up liquid was added to the water in the fountains as the supporters spent the day partying.
The Metropolitan Police said there were two arrests at the match - one for drunk and disorderly behaviour and the other for public disorder.
