Covid-19: lockout party at Loch Lomond broken up by police


In order to fly to a holiday home in Loch Lomond, more than 30 Glaswegians violated the coronavirus ban.

On Sunday, a day after level four restrictions were rolled out across mainland Scotland, police were called to break up the party, STV reports.

Restrictions on level four forbid travel beyond one’s local authority.
