Nicola Sturgeon today received a mixed reception as she arrived for a historic city-making ceremony in Dunfermline.

The Scottish First Minister was loudly booed by parts of the crowd - and cheered by others - as she smiled and waved to fellow Scots outside Dunfermline City Chambers this morning.

Crowds had gathered outside the historic building to catch a glimpse of King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla - who are also attending the event.

Dunfermline, which is just across the Forth estuary from the Scottish capital Edinburgh, was granted city status earlier this year as part of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

But the Monarch died last month, at the age of 96, before the ceremony to formally mark the honour could take place.

Today, Charles, who ascended the throne last month following the death of his mother, will be among those attending the ceremony.
