TWO men have been charged with allegedly flouting National Park bye-laws as police and park rangers continue to crack down on offences.

Officers have been actively targeting people who are flouting local bye-laws designed to encourage the responsible and considerate use of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, both ashore and on the water, as lockdown restrictions are eased.

At around 5pm on Friday, July 24 a 28-year-old man from Bishopbriggs was charged with a contravention of the bye-laws for allegedly riding a jet ski in a reckless manner and endangering swimmers in Loch Lomond, near to Auchendennan Bay.

Later that evening, at around 9pm, a 39-year-old man from Lochgelly in Fife was charged with two alleged contraventions of camping bye-laws in the National Park for camping without a permit near to Tarbet Isle and failing to leave the area when instructed to do so by police.

Both men have been reported to the procurator fiscal and police are keen to remind people that a breach of the National Park bye-laws is punishable by a fine of up to £500 per offence.
