Scottish residents will be able to meet friends and family outside from tomorrow.

Starting tomorrow, people in Scotland will be able to visit members of a different household for the first time since the lockdown began.

This will be restricted to groups of no more than eight people, and people will have to stay outside as they gather.

People will still have to remain two metres apart when they meet.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is still urging people to "stay at home as much as possible", as she warned that the virus "is still out there".

Garden centres and recycling centres will also open from Monday across Scotland, and construction firms will be allowed to start site preparations.

People will be allowed to travel within their local area for exercise, but Ms Sturgeon has urged people not to head for the country's most popular beauty sports.

"Crowds bring more risk than we judge is acceptable or safe at this point," she said.
