Marquess of Bute among group charged over 'lockdown breach'
The Marquess of Bute has been accused of flouting coronavirus rules.
John Crichton-Stuart, who lives in London, is alleged to have travelled to the Scottish island on Sunday, the day after both Prime Minister Boris Johnson and First Minister Nicola Sturgeon raised concerns over a new strain of Covid-19.
The 62-year-old is one of a group of seven who allegedly breached the government’s rules, including a 90-year-old woman.
A police spokesman said: “Three men aged 32, 62 and 69 years, and four women aged 21, 29, 60 and 90 have been charged in connection with alleged breaches under the coronavirus legislation and will be subject of a report to the Procurator Fiscal.”
A strict travel ban is in place in Scotland to stop people travelling from Scotland to the rest of the UK and vice versa.
