​Thousands took part in Edinburgh's climate march: watch the video here and see if you can spot yourself in it!

More than 5000 people marched through Edinburgh on Saturday ahead of United Nations talks in Paris where international leaders will attempt to agree a deal on cutting greenhouse gas emissions.

The march was organised by Stop Climate Chaos, a coalition of around 60 civil society groups.

It rallied round the slogan “climate, justice and jobs” and followed a route from the Meadows to Prince’s Street Gardens, where a rally was held.

The march in Edinburgh was one of more than 2000 held throughout the globe on the eve of the summit, which is intended to achieve a legally binding agreement on how to deal with climate change, from all of the world’s nations.

Many voluntary and third sector organisations took part – and loads are featured on this short video, produced by Stop Climate Chaos.
