Ayrshire will remain in level three restrictions following the Scottish Government's first review of its new system. 

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon confirmed to parliament that no local authority will move down a level this week. 

However, she did confirm that a number of level three areas are giving them concern and possible level four restrictions will be looked at over the next few days. 

A further 90 cases were confirmed in Ayrshire and Arran in the past 24 hours, with 39 deaths recorded across the country. 

The First Minister said: "While no local authority will move to level four this week, there are a number that are giving us some cause for concern and we will be monitoring these particularly closely over the next few days."

A number of authorities are seeing their level rise from two to three, while people living in Shetland, Orkney and the Western Isles will be able to meet inside homes from Friday up to six people from a maximum of two households.

The First Minister said that the measures put in place in September and October are making a difference, but there has yet to be a sustained decline in cases.
