The family of the man convicted of the Lockerbie bombing, Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi, has taken part in a march for justice in Edinburgh.

Megrahi's wife and daughter were joined by supporters and other campaigners on the "Silent Walk for Justice" which began near the castle.

The march ended at the Scottish Parliament in Holyrood.

Pictures and lit candles were laid down in front of the parliament at the end of the silent march.

His daughter said: "I'm coming for my dad, just for my dad."
