A group of Scottish youngsters have made a music video which will feature in the London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony.

The eight to 21-year-olds from Edinburgh's Broomhouse Estate are representing Scotland in the broadcast.

They were recorded singing Flower of Scotland on the Ramparts of Edinburgh Castle.

The video for the song will be one of four in a home nations music medley at the opening ceremony on 27 July.

The project leader Sasha MacLeod said the youngsters recorded the first verse of Flower of Scotland during a two-hour session in studios at BBC Scotland.

The video, involving 53 of the singers, was shot at the castle in Scotland's capital.
