Keep your distance from each other or pay up!

Emergency legislation has been passed at Westminster to curb the spread of coronavirus.

Ms Sturgeon said it meant Police Scotland could have new powers as early as today to enforce social distancing.

The new powers will allow police to hand out spot fines to anyone caught flouting the social distancing rules that were imposed earlier this week, which have left the whole of the UK effectively in “lockdown”.

Ms Sturgeon said these were “last resort” measures, but that “ultimately this is about saving lives”.
