A Glasgow priest has launched a legal action to stop a north-south divide on the right to worship during lockdown.

Canon Tom White whose St Alphonsus parish is in the heart of the city’s famous Barras has issued a pre-action letter to the Scottish Government demanding it ends the blanket ban on places of worship.

A response must be made before Tuesday February 23.

Lockdown measures designed to stop the spread of coronavirus have forced places of worship to shut.
