    Nicola Sturgeon has halted the roadmap out of lockdown for millions of Scots, including Glasgow and Edinburgh, amid fears at rising cases of the Indian variant of coronavirus.

    The First Minister said it would have been “impossible” for restrictions not to have been extended across the central belt of Scotland based on current case rates.

    Under Scotland’s roadmap, all areas of the country were due to drop into Level 1 by June 7.

    She told MSPs that while 18 local authorities would see restrictions ease, 13 areas – also including Dundee and Stirling – would stay in Level 2 of stricter curbs.
