A BORDERS MSP is calling for electronic road signs to display Scotland's coronavirus rules.

Christine Grahame, the SNP member for Midlothian South, Tweeddale and Lauderdale, wants the information shown on major routes in the region – to remind visitors that the regulations are different to those in England.

UK health secretary Sajid Javid announced last week that all COVID-19 restrictions will end south of the border on Monday July 19.

And it will no longer be mandatory for people in England to wear a face mask or practice social distancing, while businesses such as nightclubs will be allowed to reopen.

Such measures have not been introduced in Scotland and Ms Grahame believes that this potentially could cause confusion amongst travellers.

Speaking at First Minister’s Questions at Holyrood, she asked: “For me, I welcome that the wearing of face coverings is to remain mandatory and to continue in certain venues.

“Will the first minister consider placing information on electronic road signs at the border to remind our neighbours of the different rules here?”

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon responded: “That is a very good suggestion. We already have overhead signs on motorways between the different levels, so I will look to see if there is more scope to do that there, particularly at this critical juncture.

“I will certainly look at that helpful suggestion.”
