Fraud and child sexual offences online have soared during the pandemic, according to police figures.

Police Scotland’s quarterly report also shows notable increases in domestic abuse, assaults on emergency workers and anti-social behaviour.

Overall, violent crime is down on last year and there has also been a dramatic reduction in the number of road deaths and casualties.

Deputy Chief Constable Fiona Taylor said more normal patterns of crime were returning. She said: "Reported crime across a number of categories has returned to what we would normally expect to see, following a significant overall decrease during lockdown."
