Aberdeen police probe 'irresponsible' gathering of over 80 cars

Police are investigating a mass organised car gathering in Aberdeen on Saturday.

Officers say more than 80 vehicles were involved in the unofficial event at Queens Links Leisure Park, which resulted in numerous reports of dangerous and careless driving, noise pollution and other offences - in close proximity of spectators.

Constable Callum Kerr of the north-east road policing unit said: "This was an impromptu event, irresponsibly organised through social media, and inquiries are ongoing to identify those responsible.

"Many car events are organised properly through the appropriate channels, and go ahead without issue in a socially distanced manner.

"Unofficial events such as the one of Saturday only serve to tarnish the reputation of legitimate organisers who abide by the law and provide a safe and enjoyable experience.

"We are appealing for anyone with information about Saturday’s gathering to contact Police Scotland on 101 and quote incident number 3312 of May 29."
