Glasgow shoppers are supportive of the requirement to wear a mask in shops, early evidence suggests.

Police Scotland said as of today it has not issued any spot fines in the city for breaches since it became mandatory on Friday.

Officers are said to be carrying out random checks in retail centres and high street stores.

The wearing of face covering in shops is now a requirement in England and already covered public transport.

People with certain medical conditions or disabilities, and children under five are exempt.

The Scottish government has said it hopes using face coverings will provide an additional layer of protection to lower the risk of coronavirus being transmitted.

But it insists face coverings are not a substitute for other measures to stop the virus from spreading, such as physical distancing and hand washing.
