INVERCLYDE'S MP Ronnie Cowan has urged people to continue to adhere to lockdown restrictions.

Mr Cowan spoke out after the Tele reported how seven more local people had died as a result of coronavirus, taking the death toll to 191.

He said: "Undoubtedly we are moving in the right direction in our common fight against Covid but we must not let our guard down too early.

"The consequences can be dire.
