    People in Scotland will be able to meet in bigger groups from Friday with almost 40 per cent of the country’s adult population now vaccinated, Nicola Sturgeon has announced

    The First Minister said four people from two households will now be able to meet outdoors from Friday.

    It comes after new figures revealed that close to 1.8 million people have received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine in Scotland.

    For children aged between 12 and 17, outdoor meetings will also be limited to four people, but these can be from up to four households.

    The First Minister also said that while travel restrictions cannot be lifted for adults, they will be eased slightly for children taking part in sport where their club may be “a bit outside” their council area.

    Outdoor, non-contact sports for adults in groups of up to 15 will also be able to start again from Friday.

    In addition communal worship is set to restart from Friday, March 26. The limit on attendance has risen from 20 to 50, so long as two-metre distancing can be in place.
