Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has defended her handling of the crisis, amid figures showing a higher death rate north of the border in recent weeks.

Across the UK another 12,155 new cases have been confirmed over the last 24 hours. A further 215 deaths have been reported, taking the total to 58,245.
