Scotland will bask in warm weather this weekend, with Friday and Saturday expected to be the hottest days of the year. 

However, lockdown rules are still in force meaning we won't be able to freely frolic in the sunshine. 

In a prediction for Glasgow, The Met Office said Friday, Saturday and Sunday would see "a dry spell of weather with long bright or sunny spells" with temperatures "becoming very warm during the afternoons".

Last week, Police Scotland sent officers to parks and beaches to move on sunbathers who were breaking social distancing regulations as temperatures soared to 23C in parts of the country. 

Officers were seen at Glasgow's Botanic Gardens and Portobello Beach in Edinburgh.

Police Scotland told us it received several reports during the afternoon of Wednesday, 20 May, relating to crowds in the Botanic Gardens and Portobello beach.

Officers "engaged with members of the public"  and did not issue any fines. 

A spokeswoman for Police Scotland said: “The Scottish Government’s guidance is clear: people should only leave the house for very limited purposes, for example for basic necessities, such as food and medicine, for exercise, for medical needs or travelling for work which cannot be done at home.

“Our officers will continue to engage with the public, explain the legislation, encourage compliance and will use enforcement only when necessary.”
