Police Scotland has launched a new online form for people to report others breaking Covid restrictions.
The form allows members of the public to report breaches such as social gatherings and businesses not wearing face coverings.
Mainland Scotland is currently living in level four restrictions, making it illegal to travel to other local authorities or have others in your household without an essential reason.

The form is intended to alleviate some of the pressure on 999 services to ensure that they are being used for emergency reasons only.
Police Scotland said: “Our online reporting form for reporting Covid-19 breaches is now live.
“Make sure you understand the rules around gatherings for your area, via the Scottish Government, before you get in touch with us.”
A previous post stated: “Don’t call 101 or 999 for guidance on Covid-19 restrictions.
“Misuse of 101 and 999 could cost lives.”
