Armed police will be on patrol in Scotland in the wake of the Manchester suicide bombing.
Members of the public will see an increased police presence in busy areas, such as transport hubs, shopping areas and city centres.
Police are treating the attack which killed 22 and injured almost 60 people as terrorism and looking at whether the bomber was acting as part of a network, but are keen to stress there is no suggestion of any threat to Scotland.
Chief Constable Phil Gormley said: “My thoughts and those of everyone at Police Scotland are with those who have lost loved ones or who were injured in the attack in Manchester.
“As part of the UK-wide response to these events, Police Scotland continues to review all safety and security plans and operations.
“This includes ensuring our armed policing and specialist resources are appropriately deployed.
“People will therefore see armed police on patrol at transport hubs and crowded places. There is no intelligence to suggest there is any threat to Scotland but I would ask the public to remain alert and report anything suspicious.
“We continue to liaise with the UK authorities in response to this incident.”
