Watch in full: Nicola Sturgeon announces Scotland to move beyond level zero next Monday

The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Watch in full: Nicola Sturgeon announces Scotland to move beyond level zero next Monday” – below is their description.

Most legal Covid-19 restrictions in Scotland will be removed from August 9, Nicola Sturgeon has said.

The First Minister told a meeting of MSPs on Tuesday that Scotland would “move beyond Level 0” from Monday, as was previously planned.

The First Minister told MSPs on Tuesday: “This change is significant and hard-earned. The sacrifices everyone has made over the past year-and-a-half can never be overstated.

“However, while this move will restore a substantial degree of normality, it is important to be clear that it does not signal the end of the pandemic or a return to life exactly as we knew it before Covid struck.

“Declaring freedom from, or victory over, this virus is premature.”
