Dounby Show park in Orkney closed by police due to 'incident'

Police at scene

Part of an Orkney show park has been closed by police due to an "incident".

Police Scotland said the site of yesterday's Dounby Show was closed early this morning due to an "ongoing inquiry".

A spokesman said: "The investigation is in its early stages. As such, it would be inappropriate to give further details, other than to say this is not an ongoing incident."

The show which wasn't affected featured livestock, food, crafts and a fair.

Several hours later, police added: "The dounby show park is now open. Police would like to thank the public for their understanding and patience."
