A MOVING city centre protest urged other members of the community to take action, and not lest on their laurels.

Saying we need "action and not empty words", more than 100 activists from across the Highlands processed through the city before a rally at Falcon Square in Inverness.

Speaking on behalf of the activists, a spokeswoman said: "We had about 100 people marching through Inverness and listening to speeches and singing with talented singer Fi Macbean from Forres.

"We also had drama from young people Calli and Shanna Gibb, who roped in their dad to take part.

"It took real commitment for people to come out on a stormy wet day like today and we got our message across together that it’s climate action, not empty words, that will save even here in Inverness from climate catastrophe."
