FIFE COUNCIL have advised mourners that face masks must be worn at funeral services that are held indoors.

Changes that came into force on Saturday mean that anyone attending who doesn't cover up will be breaking the law.

A statement from the council said: "If you're attending a funeral in the next few days, you have our condolences, but there's some important new legislation that you need to be aware of.

"It is now compulsory to wear a face-covering if you are attending an indoor funeral.

"Previously, it was only advised, now it's the law.

"This includes funeral services in crematoriums, funeral directors’ premises and places of worship."

They added: "The cap on numbers of attendees at indoor and outdoor funeral services remains at no more than 20 people, and less than 20 people if the two-metres physical distancing rules are not able to be adhered to."
