On Sunday, authorities announced that no Coronavirus deaths had been reported overnight for the first time since March.

As of today, people arriving in Scotland from abroad must now isolate themselves for 14 days.

Newcomers who flout the rules face fines while repeat offenders could be prosecuted.

Travellers will be required to complete a passenger location form with details of where they will isolate themselves and how they can be contacted.

The measures are temporary and will be reviewed every three weeks – but will not be lifted until it is safe to do so.

Failure to complete the location form before arrival or refusal to complete it could result in an increase of 60 euros from a fixed penalty notice on a progressive scale of 480 euros.

Violation of self-isolation could result in a fixed penalty notice of 480 euros.
