Police Scotland urging people to stay away from Cruise Irvine in North Ayrshire on Sunday.

Car enthusiasts are being urged not to travel to an event taking place at Irvine Beach Park on Sunday.

Police Scotland says people should not attend Cruise Irvine in North Ayrshire due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A large police presence will be in and around the area and the force has warned that antisocial behaviour “will be dealt with robustly”.

Police Scotland said: “Our Chief Constable has made it clear that we are asking people to take personal responsibility to do the right thing and remember the purpose of these measures is to aid the collective effort to stay safe, protect others and save lives by preventing the virus from spreading.

“If this event does go ahead it will be policed appropriately and officers will engage with the public to explain the legislation and encourage compliance. Enforcement will be used as a last resort where there is a clear breach of the regulations.”
