The public inquiry was set up in December 2021 to examine the Scottish government's handling of the crisis but has been hit by a wave of resignations.

Chairwoman Lady Poole and four members of the counsel team have stepped down, raising the prospect of delays.

John Swinney is understood to have told the families he expects progress in finding replacements by 25 October.

The Scottish Covid-19 Bereaved Families for Justice group's solicitor Aamer Anwar said his clients were demanding answers.

He said: "The families respect that judicial independence must firstly be respected, but the bereaved families told Mr Swinney that they believe they have the right to answers from the Lord President on what has gone so wrong.

"There can be no further excuses for delays or mistakes."

Mr Anwar added that the group were hoping a judge with "a reputation for fairness, robustness, independence and compassion" would be appointed.
