Sturgeon calls for 'four-nations approach' on Covid

The first ministers of Scotland and Wales have written a joint letter to Boris Johnson calling for a "four-nations approach" on tougher travel restrictions, after nine cases of the Omicron variant were found in the UK.

During a press conference on Monday, First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon said the new Covid variant presents "potentially the most challenging development" for some time.
