From today in Scotland, hospitality venues such as cafes, pubs and restaurants can resume full outdoor service, subject to local licensing, and serve food indoors without alcohol until 8pm.

Also, takeaways can resume normal service, with physical distancing and face masks in premises.

Tourist accommodation can reopen too along with non-essential retail outlets and close contact services such as beauty salons.

Indoor attractions and public buildings such as galleries, museums and libraries can welcome visitors.

The remaining travel restrictions within Scotland are also lifted and travel within the UK is now permitted for any purpose.

If everyone continues to follow the rules, the First Minister said it is expected that all of Scotland will move to Level 2 on Monday 17 May.
