Ministers are being urged to reassure the British public about the safety of hosting Euro 2020 games and other major events after almost 1,300 Scotland fans tested positive for COVID-19 after travelling to London for a match.

This footage was filmed in Leicester Square ahead of Scotland's clash with England on June 18.
