For Police Scotland has announced that car parks in two more local beauty spots are no longer operational.

This was amidst fears that car users were spreading infection across the parking bays and beyond as they failed to adhere to rules on social distancing.

The areas in question are at Auchinstarry Quarry and Broadwood Loch and police worked with North Lanarkshire Council to impose the clampdown.

None of the locations mentioned are shut to the public - but anyone who wishes to visit them is asked to make their way there by foot or bicycle.
