  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “In full: Nicola Sturgeon answers questions in Scottish Parliament” – below is their description.

    Nicola Sturgeon appears at First Ministers’ Questions after delaying Scottish lockdown easing in some areas.

    On Wednesday night, the First Minister faced a growing backlash over her decision to leave more than half a dozen mainly Central Belt council areas in “limbo” by cancelling a planned move into Level 1 next week, citing rising case numbers and the highly transmissible Indian variant.

    She said the full-blown return to the levels system, which will see 13 council areas held back and Glasgow finally allowed to move to Level 2, was needed to buy time for people to receive second vaccine doses.
