Fines have been issued after police responded to reports of hundreds of young people taking part in illegal gatherings in East Dunbartonshire.
Officers responded to reports of crowds of over 200 youths at both Windyhill Golf Course and Milngavie Reservoir on Saturday.
At around 7.10pm, police said 25 people were moved on from the reservoir near Mugdock Country Park.
At around 8.30pm, police said they dispersed around 150 people from the grounds of a golf club and issued several fixed penalty notices.
East Dunbartonshire Police said that alcohol was a significant factor at Windyhill Golf Course where parents came to collect their children.
Inspector Graeme Hogg, Greater Glasgow Police Division, said: “Our approach throughout the pandemic has been to engage with the public, explain the legislation and encourage compliance, but we will not hesitate to use our enforcement powers as a last resort.”
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “On Saturday, April 3, 2021, police attend a number of calls in relation to people gathering in large groups in the Milngavie area, particularly at Milngavie Reservoir and in the grounds of a local golf club.
“Around 7.10pm, approximately 25 people were moved on from the reservoir. Around 8.30pm, approximately 150 people were dispersed from the grounds of the golf club and a number of fixed penalty notices were issued.”
