The Scottish Government has announced that European Union (EU) funding contracts for farming, fisheries and structural funds projects that are agreed before the UK proposes to leave the EU will be paid in full.
Finance Secretary Derek Mackay has announced that he will be passing on, in full, the EU funding guarantees that have been offered by the UK Government, providing certainty for over £700 million of EU funding for Scotland.
Mr Mackay said:
Police Scotland have launched a campaign to raise awareness about the devastating effects of livestock worrying.
The month-long campaign, aimed at dog owners, coincides with a rise in livestock attacks during November. This month, sheep are brought down to low lying pasture - in areas where more people exercise their dogs or where local dogs are allowed to roam free.
