First Minister Nicola Sturgeon unveiled the country’s route map out of lockdown on March 16, with today seeing customers allowed back into some businesses.

Some non-essential shops can reopen, including garden centres and homeware stores, and click-and-collect services will resume as well.

The move will be followed on April 26 with a wider reopening of the economy, with beer gardens and gyms returning to trading and more people being able to meet up outdoors and inside public places.

Ms Sturgeon previously said she hopes the country will return to normality by the summer.

Here are the 11 changes being made to the lockdown rules today.
