Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has confirmed that most remaining COVID restrictions will be lifted in the country on 9 August.

It means nightclubs can reopen, sports stadia and concert venues will be able to welcome full capacity crowds and social distancing will come to an end.

But Ms Sturgeon has already confirmed face coverings in shops and public transport will remain mandatory for “some time to come”.

There are also changes to the rules on self isolation for contacts of those who test positive for COVID-19.
