John Swinney has claimed he doesn't understand "the fuss" over the introduction of covid vaccine passports in Scotland. The Deputy First Minister defended the controversial scheme which was initially rolled-out in October and sees Scots asked to prove their vaccination status before they are allowed in certain venues.

Under current rules, members of the public are required to show a digital or paper copy of the passport before they can enter a nightclub or attend a large sporting event.

But Nicola Sturgeon this week hinted the scheme could soon be expanded to include other venues as a condition of Omicron restrictions being dropped.
