TRAGIC victims of the Tory Government’s welfare cuts regime were remembered with a candlelight vigil in Edinburgh.

People with disabilities and campaigners gathered outside Edinburgh’s St Giles Cathedral and Edinburgh City Chambers to pay tribute to dozens of people who have either taken their own lives or died as an alleged result of benefit cuts.

The event was hosted by Scottish disability campaign group Black Triangle as a mark of respect for those who have died, as part of Disability History Month Scotland, which runs until December 22.
