Police break up 405 house parties across Scotland

Six people were arrested as police broke up 405 house parties across Scotland at the weekend in alleged breaches of coronavirus regulations.

Just one fixed penalty noticed was issued following the incidents between Friday and Sunday with police giving advice while dispersing party-goers.
