It comes as several council areas are facing changes to their tier level today, due to be announced by the First Minister when she addresses Parliament this afternoon.

Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire could be moving up to tier 3 from its current position in tier 2 of the framework, which means bars and restaurants would have to stop selling alcohol.

Nicola Sturgeon previously emphasised that the 11 local authority areas in tier 4 would remain at that level until December 11.
