Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said she will not have an "indoor Christmas dinner" with her parents this year to avoid putting them at risk from coronavirus.


"I've not seen my parents since July and I would dearly love to see them today and at Christmas, but I don't want to put them at risk when a vaccine is so close," she told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.


"We might go and have a family walk somewhere, but the idea ...of an indoors Christmas dinner is something we will not do this year."


In Scotland, three households will be allowed to form a bubble and mix inside their homes between 23 and 27 December.


However, Sturgeon said: "The default advice I would give is that if you can manage it over Christmas, not to come together with other households."
