Police officers have been called to Kelvingrove Park as "over 200 groups" of people are currently sitting on the grounds embracing the sunshine. 

An eyewitness told the Glasgow Times that two vans, one car and eight officers attended the scene to speak to the sunbathers. 

They said: "All [sunbathers] are spaced well apart. 

"There is more than 200 people at that section and many more throughout the park.

"They are speaking to larger groups. Some people moved on before they were spoken to but most stayed."

It's understood the officers patrolled the park then left after 10 minutes.

The eyewitness added: "The park is very busy with sunbathers and some having portable barbeques."

Phase one of the Scottish Government's lockdown lifting plan was introduced on Friday - meaning that members of the public can now meet-up with up to two other households outdoors at a safe two-meter distance. 

Groups of more than eight people meeting are still currently forbidden.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon earlier warned that a strict lockdown will return as there were too many people being dispersed by police over the weekend and too many people travelling to beauty spots like Loch Lomond over the weekend.
