ABOUT 200 youths gathered on the beach at North Berwick, with six bags of alcohol confiscated.

The incident was included in a report by the town’s new community police officers Douglas Kerr and Marco Crolla that was sent to North Berwick Community Council ahead of its meeting last Tuesday.

On June 10, officers received reports of a large number of youths gathered at the coast. Police attended and spotted between 100 and 200 people.

Additional resources were deployed and all the youths were escorted away and put on trains back to Edinburgh by 9pm.

One was taken home by their parents due to their level of intoxication.

Six bin bags of alcohol were confiscated.
