Scottish police have issued a warning to the country's chief medical officer, urging her to follow her own advice on coronavirus measures and restrictions.
Everyone in Scotland is being told to not leave their home unless they have a 'reasonable excuse'.
However, The Scottish Sun reported that chief medical officer Catherine Calderwood visited her second home on the east coast of Scotland - an hour's drive from her home in Edinburgh - despite her own government's advice.
In a statement, Police Scotland Chief Constable Iain Livingstone said officers had visited Dr Calderwood to 'speak to her about her actions, reiterate crucial advice and issue a warning about her future conduct'.

Saying Dr Calderwood had accepted the police message, Mr Livingstone said: "The legal instructions on not leaving your home without a reasonable excuse apply to everyone..
"Social distancing is the key intervention to curtail the spread of coronavirus and it is essential the instructions are followed to protect each other, support key workers, take strain from the NHS, and save lives.
"Individuals must not make personal exemptions bespoke to their own circumstances."
Dr Calderwood, meanwhile, has issued a public apology for her actions - saying while there were reasons for what she did, they did not justify it and she did not have "legitimate reasons" to be out of her home.
She said: "While I and my family followed the guidance on social distancing at all times, I understand that I did not follow the advice I am giving to others, and I am truly sorry for that."
She said she does not want her mistake to distact from the advice being given, and says she will now continue "to focus entirely" on her job.
