Hundreds of football fans attended a pro-independence march in Caerdydd on Wednesday evening.

The march was organised by Welsh Football Fans for Independence, "a group for Welsh fans that support independence for our country, as well as for our football team."

Fans met at Womanby Street in the city centre, before making their way to Cardiff City Stadium in time for Cymru's World Cup qualifying fixture against Estonia.

Fans lit flares and sang a number of chants as they made their way past Castell Caerdydd and toward the stadium. At one point the crowd broke out into a rousing rendition of Hen Wlad fy Nhadau.

Unfortunately, events were somewhat less lively on the field, and the game ended in a disappointing nil-nil draw.
