    SYNOPSIS: Miners in the Lothians district of Scotland today held a protest march in Edinburgh against the National Coal Boards decision to close thirty pits.

    Some one thousand miners assembled in the Grassmarket shortly after mid-day and, with their lodge banners, they marched past Edinburgh Castle, with pipers playing.

    From the streets, the men went to the Usher Hall, where they took part in a mass rally.

    In Edinburgh, there's been a march of fifteen-hundred miners protesting against the closing of Scottish pits.
