HUGE parts of Scotland will be placed into tough Level 4 lockdown restrictions from Friday to try and save Christmas, Nicola Sturgeon announced Tuesday.

The City of Glasgow, Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire, East Dunbartonshire, West Dunbartonshire, North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, East Ayrshire, South Ayrshire, Stirling and West Lothian will all move to Level 4 from 6pm on Friday.

Ms Sturgeon said coronavirus cases in these areas were stuck "stubbornly and worryingly high".

Ms Sturgeon said today a "limited period" of the strictest measures could allow the tough rules to be relaxed in time for Christmas.

She said: "Level 4 is intended to be short and sharp and in this situation it is intended to have an impact in advance of Christmas and the most challenging winter period.

"These decisions will give us the best possible chance - albeit in a limited and careful way - of being able to ease restrictions in all parts of Scotland for Christmas."

The Level 4 rules are the closest to "full lockdown", with non-essential shops forced to shut again, along with bars, restaurants, hairdressers and tourist attractions.
