Coronavirus Scotland: Cops catch flouters breaching Tier 4 travel rules after they trip Inverclyde building alarm
Police handed out five fixed penalties following the incident on Wednesday night.
Officers responded to an alarm activation at a building in Robert Street, Port Glasgow, around 9.20pm.
When cops arrived nine people were spoken to and found to have travelled from Lanarkshire as part of an urban exploring group who planned to search a derelict building.
As a result, five Fixed Penalties Notices were handed out to adults for breach of the non-essential travel regulations.
CI Cameron continued: “The Chief Constable has made it clear that we are asking people to take personal responsibility to do the right thing and remember that the purpose of these measures is to aid the collective effort to protect the NHS and save lives by preventing the virus from spreading.
“Our officers will continue to engage with the public, explain the legislation and guidance, and encourage compliance.
“We will use enforcement as a last resort where there is a clear breach of the legislation.”
