The new licensing laws in Scotland come into force today the biggest change to licensing there in 30 years.
Alcohol displays in supermarkets will be confined to a separate area
The 2005 Licensing Act puts in place a number of changes - it bans irresponsible promotions in pubs and clubs, introduces separate display areas for alcohol in shops and off-licences and places a requirement on pubs and clubs to provide free tap water.
New rules in the off-trade also mean that customers will not be able to buy alcohol before 10am. The Wine and Spirit Trade Association (WSTA) has voiced concern that this will inconvenience older customers who do their shop when it is quieter.
Retailers are also seeking clarification on what constitutes and "irresponsible" promotion.
