Two Glasgow men fined after breaching coronavirus restrictions to go to Greenock for sunbed
Two men who breached coronavirus restrictions to go for a sunbed have been fined.
The pair were travelling in a vehicle which was stopped by police in Greenock’s High Street on Wednesday night.
Officers discovered the duo, who are aged 32 and 33, had travelled to Inverclyde – a tier three restricted area – from Glasgow, which falls under tier four restrictions.
Under level three and four lockdown measures, Scots are banned from travelling into or out of other local authority areas except for essential purposes.
Due to the breach, both men were given a fixed penalty notice.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Officers carried out a routine vehicle stop on High Street, Greenock, around 8.30pm on Wednesday, November 25.
“During the routine stop, it became clear two men within the vehicle were in blatant breach of current coronavirus restrictions. A fixed penalty notice was issued to both men, aged 32 and 33.”
