WORLD-renowned photographer Stuart Roy Clarke is helping to highlight sectarianism with the launch of a new project.

The photographer, who is famous for documenting the lives of football fans, has been commissioned by Supporters Direct Scotland to launch The Colours of our Scarves.

Funded by the Scottish Government, the project will engage with football clubs, supporters, schools, youth groups and communities around football stadiums to gain a perspective on the issue of sectarianism across the country.

Around 200 new images are being captured across every senior ground in Scotland and will be on show at a touring exhibition around the country throughout the next 18 months.

The first display of a selection of Clarke's new photos will be on show at The Falkirk Stadium before the Falkirk v Morton match today, following a week of community events.

Three further weeks of activity will happen around forthcoming games at Hamilton, Dundee and Edinburgh with dates soon to be confirmed.
