Scotland will fall silent at noon today

1 min read

One year on from the first COVID-19 lockdown, Scotland will fall silent at noon as a part of a day of reflection. 

Building and landmarks will also be illuminated as a feature of the day.

People across Scotland are also being encouraged to stand on their doorsteps at 8pm with their phones, candles or torches.

The national day of remembrance has been organised by the end-of-life charity Marie Curie.

Nicola Sturgeon has also paid tribute to everyone who “continues to make heartbreaking sacrifices”.
