Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has expressed concern over Boris Johnson's declaration that the UK is "past the peak" of the virus, and warned that the nation is still in a "fragile" position.

Earlier, she had declined to echo the Prime Minister's comments, saying she was "cautious about talking about being past the peak... the peak is not necessarily a single day or a couple of days".
