    Nicola Sturgeon has confirmed that Glasgow will move down a level of Covid controls to level 2 from Saturday, with residents able to hug, drink alcohol indoors and meet in each other’s homes for the first time in eight months. 

    The first minister also slowed the easing of restrictions elsewhere across central Scotland. Sturgeon said that rising infection rates meant that 13 other local authority areas would remain in level 2, rather than moving to level 1
