That puts the region below every other mainland local authority area in Scotland despite remaining in Level 3 restrictions longer than most of the country.

Only the Shetland Islands, Orkney Islands and Na h-Eileanan Siar recorded fewer cases with 58, 32 and 26 respectively.

The figures released by the Scottish Government show the number of Covid-19 restriction breaches which were pursued by Police Scotland over the past year.

Over 20,000 coronavirus crimes were recorded in Scotland as a whole - a significant increase on the 107 reported last year when coronavirus restrictions were initially introduced.

Unsurprisingly, Glasgow and Edinburgh lead the way with 6790 and 2056 breaches reported respectively.
