Places of worship across mainland Scotland will close from Friday as the latest set of coronavirus restrictions continue across the country.

Churches and other similar venues can only open under the new guidance – set out by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon on Monday – to broadcast a service or conduct a funeral, wedding or civil partnership.

Once again there are limits on such ceremonies taking place with a maximum of 20 people allowed to attend a funeral service – however wakes are banned.
