Earlier, unionists had flooded George Square and the police acted to make sure the two sides did not meet. Singing 'Shove your union up your arse', the Yes supporters were eventually allowed by police to pass by St Vincent Place and on to George Square. They chanted in unison 'George Square!' but were still blocked by police from entering the main area. As the police had blocked the Yes supporters, it meant a huge traffic jam was caused, with drivers anxious and annoyed by what was taking place close by to them.
