TWO MEN have been arrested after a political rally took place in Ayr last weekend.

Thousands of campaigners took the streets of Ayr on Saturday, July 6 to show support for Scottish Independence. 

Organised by the pro-independence group 'All Under One Banner' the demo marched through the town centre finishing up at Low Green.
