After First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced the Highlands will move into lockdown in a bid to halt the spread of coronavirus, we asked our readers what they thought.

The poll has now been closed voting and by a narrow margin those who responded did not think it was the right decision.

We asked "Do you agree with the lockdown measures stated in Nicola Sturgeon's latest announcement?"

Lockdown has seen pubs, bars, gyms, restaurants and all non-essential shops close for three weeks.

Of the 6271 people who voted 51% or 3178 did not agree with the restrictions, while 47% 2968 said they did not agree with the lockdown measures, 125 people said they were not sure about the decision.
