Scotland’s Christmas bubbles to be limited to EIGHT people – but kids under 12 won’t count

SCOTLAND’s Christmas bubbles will be limited to just EIGHT people – but kids under 12 won’t count, it was annouced today.

Nicola Sturgeon slapped a limit on the number of people north of the border who can meet up next month, contrary to the rest of the UK.

Rules will be relaxed across the country between 23 and 27 December to allow people to see family.

Up to three households can join together in a Christmas bubble, it was announced this week.

However, in Scotland there are different rules about what counts as a bubble.

In England people can form a support bubble with single parents with kids under 18 – or anyone living alone.

And from next week new parents with a kid under one can bubble up with another household as if they are one.

But Ms Sturgeon was concerned that too many households will try and meet over the Christmas period.

So she’s slapped on a maximum limit of eight people.
