A serial sex offender at HMP Edinburgh has become the first prisoner to die of coronavirus in Scotland.
John Angus was taken to hospital for treatment after a fall, however medical staff found the 66-year-old had a high temperature and he subsequently tested positive for Covid-19.
Angus, who was convicted at Inverness High Court in 2010 of drugging and assaulting a woman, is understood to have had a number of underlying health conditions.
Police Scotland have been advised and the matter reported to the Procurator Fiscal.
A Fatal Accident Inquiry will be held in due course.
Thirty prisoners across the Scottish Prison Service estate are currently self isolating.
