Scottish independence: Eddie Izzard and Bob Geldof lead Trafalgar Square rally supporting union

An estimated 10,000 Londoners gathered in Trafalgar Square yesterday evening in a last-ditch bid to urge Scotland to vote No to independence in Thursday’s referendum.
Musician and campaigner Sir Bob Geldof made a surprise appearance at the event, hosted by comedian Eddie Izzard and broadcaster Dan Snow. Geldof said that he wanted to tell Scots: “We’re all fed up of Westminster too”, but that the UK was the “greatest idea ever invented”.
