ScotRail will provide face masks for free at more than a dozen stations from today as coverings become mandatory on public transport.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced on Thursday that passengers would be required to cover their faces on all forms of public transport, apart from children under five and people with certain medical conditions.

To help people comply, railway operator ScotRail said face masks would be available free of charge at 18 of its busiest stations for a limited period but asked passengers to bring their own if possible.

The stations include Queen Street, Central, Exhibition Centre, Hyndland and Argyle Street in Glasgow and Haymarket and Waverley in Edinburgh.

The others are Inverness, Aberdeen, Johnstone, Ayr, Paisley Gilmour Street, Linlithgow, Falkirk High, Bathgate, Airdrie, Dalmuir and Motherwell.
