Localised restrictions have been put into place in Aberdeen City following an outbreak of coronavirus cases.

The Scottish Government has ordered the city's pubs, restaurants and cafes to close. People have also been told not to meet other households indoors or travel more than five miles for recreational purposes.

The restrictions have been introduced after there were 54 positive cases of COVID-19 in a cluster associated with a bar in the city.

Cllr Jenny Laing, co-leader of Aberdeen City Council, said: 'It is unfortunate that just as we were returning to normality that this has happened, but the safety of our citizens is our first priority. We must adhere to the Scottish Government’s guidance to ensure the safety of everyone.

'Aberdeen City Council will continue to work with partner organisations including NHS Grampian and Police Scotland to ensure that all necessary steps are taken to reduce the potential spread of COVID-19 in the city and surrounding areas.'
