First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has issued a warning to pubs not complying with governmental orders to shut down. 

The UK government instructed all pubs, restaurants and entertainment venues to shut down as of Friday to limit the spread of coronavirus. 

Nicola Sturgeon's government backed the request demanding venues shut in Scotland during a televised address from Bute House.

Popular East End pub the Bristol Bar Glasgow posted on Facebook on Saturday evening that they would be keeping up the "party" until midnight. 

The post has now been deleted from their page.

Sturgeon encouraged pubs to do "the right thing" and follow the closure order as the number of Scottish deaths reached seven this weekend. 

Glasgow Times:

A Greenock pub also remained open on Saturday night in spite of governmental instructions.

 The pub, Cheers, hosted revellers through the night and told the Scottish Sun they would remain open until it became "unsafe" to do so. 

Police were later called to the premises after an assault took place on the property. 

A 50-year-old man was arrested after another received minor injuries. 

A spokeswoman for the force confirmed to the Glasgow Times investigations into the incident were ongoing. 

Sturgeon tweeted on Saturday evening: "I’m seeing some suggestions on here that a small minority might not be complying. If that’s true, make no mistake...lives are at risk as a result.

"Please do the right thing now."
