Nicola Sturgeon has updated parliament on the latest coronavirus restrictions.

Nicola Sturgeon has set out the latest coronavirus restrictions for each council area in Scotland.

Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and East Lothian have been moved into level three.

The First Minister also said Edinburgh will remain in level three due to a sharp rise in cases in the capital over the past week.

Argyll and Bute is likely to move to level one next week if case numbers remain as low as they currently are, she added.

On November 2, a new five-tiered system came into force, ranging from level zero to level four.

Level zero represents the closest to normal the country can get without effective treatment or a vaccine, whereas level four is closer to the full lockdown restrictions seen at the start of the pandemic.
