IT was a 'brolly good show' from Millport protestors as a colourful cavalcade of campaigners marched to the top of the island to call for a solar farm plan to be halted - armed with their trusty umbrellas.

All ages ascended to the summit of the island, as drones buzzed overhead to capture the unique protest.

Members of the public staged the demonstration in a bid to block a new solar farm being built at the scenic viewpoint.

Residents were urged to come out in force to protest against the proposal by Comsol Energy after a fresh planning application was submitted to North Ayrshire Council.

Cumbrae Community Council urged residents to bring an umbrella as part of the demonstration to highlight the fact that it rains 183 days a year on the island - making it unsuitable for a solar farm.

Alex Harvie, chair of the council, told the News that she was delighted by the turnout on Saturday morning.

She said: "Thank you to the over 100 people who came along - and to Millport Motors for helping people get to the top of the island."
