Local MP Jo Swinson and other members of the Liberal Democrat Conference rally audience were treated to uplifting traditional Scottish music performed by pupils from Douglas Academy Music School.

Led by the music school’s course director Derek Norval the nine pupils had audience members clapping along as they acted as the musical welcome to Glasgow.

Ms Swinson said: “Like everyone else in the audience I was impressed by just how talented the group of young musicians from Douglas Academy were.

“There was such a buzz in the room following their performance - they really got the rally off to a great start.”
