Greater freedoms are hopefully just around the corner for those in Scotland as the government is scheduled to move the country into Level 0 in mid-July.

After that, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon hopes to scrap all remaining legal measures three weeks later on 9 August, with Scotland returning to “almost complete normality”.

The move would be similar to the “Freedom Day” changes announced by Boris Johnson for England from 19 July.

These are the restrictions that will be lifted on the same date in Scotland if the move to Level 0 comes into effect:
