TOO many people were ignoring the lockdown rules and risk restrictions being re-imposed, the First Minister has warned.

Nicola Sturgeon said at the weekend, the first since lockdown was eased slightly last Friday, there were too many people being dispersed by police and too many people travelling to beauty spots like Loch Lomond.

Ms Sturgeon said the numbers dispersed by police was five times higher the weekend than it was the weekend before.

There were just under 800 dispersals recorded by police.

She also warned that people were ignoring the five-mile guidance and there were people staying overnight in tents and camper vans.

Ms Sturgeon said traffic on the A82 at Loch Lomond was three times higher.

She said she was going to be “blunt” with people.

Ms Sturgeon said: “We will be considering all of this as we consider phase one. Last week allowed some flexibility but left room for discretion.”

She said it was guidance rather than law.

But Ms Sturgeon added: “If there is evidence of even a minority not abiding by the guidance we will have to put the guidance into law and we wont hesitate to do that. “

She said the no more than two households meeting up rule was already in law.

Ms Sturgeon added: “The progress is not guaranteed and it is not irreversible. If hat happens it will result in more lives being lost and restrictions will be re-imposed rather than relaxed.”

The First Minister said she stood by her comments last week that she was "proud" of how the country had acted in following lockdown but did not want the actions of a minority to undo the good work of the majority.

She said she continuend to appeal to people's good judgement.
