MSPs are set to vote on Scotland's new five-level system of lockdown restrictions in the Scottish Parliament today.

Members of parliament on all sides of the house will debate the plan drawn up by the government to place different parts of the country into a tiered system similar to the one in England.

If approved the system will come into force on November 2.

It comes as a leaked letter revealed that north and south Lanarkshire are set to head into the highest level when the restrictions are implemented.

Infection levels in Dundee are also causing concern and the city could face greater curbs by being placed into level 3.

Glasgow and Edinburgh face no change by staying at level 3.

Yesterday it was announced by Nicola Sturgeon that one person had died in the last 24-hour period from coronavirus, while 1,122 people had tested positve.

Level four - the toughest level of restrictions - could be imposed on North and South Lanarkshire while Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee are moved to level three.

Aberdeen could be placed at level two while more rural council areas - where transmission of the virus is lowest - could be placed at level one.
