Police / Police seize alcohol and cigarettes from underaged youths

POLICE in Shetland are appealing to parents of local youths to warn their underaged children of the dangers of consuming alcohol.

The appeal comes after local officers were called to the beach area close to Leog Lane, in Lerwick, on Saturday evening where a group of youngsters had gathered.

Police said that on their arrival the group of approximately six youths made off and left behind a quantity of alcohol and cigarettes.

PC Maxwell said: “After seizing the alcohol and cigarettes it was noted that the area was littered with broken bottles and empty food packages.

“This area is regularly used by families and dog walkers.”

A police spokesperson added that officers would be carrying out further patrols in the area. Should people become aware of youths congregating or consuming alcohol in public, then they should contact Police Scotland on telephone 101.

On Monday, concern was raised at a meeting of Lerwick Community Council about the amount of rubbish that people are leaving at the Sands of Sound, including broken glass buried in the sand.
