Police urge young Belladrum revellers to behave

Parents of teenagers attending a music festival have been asked by police to make sure they behave themselves.

Police said they would be "dealing robustly" with incidents of underage drinking at the Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival near Beauly.

Ch Insp Jim Neil said it was a successful annual event, but revellers' days out could be spoiled by the drunken antics of a few.

The festival will be held on Friday and Saturday.

Northern Constabulary urged parents to make sure any of their children going to the festival behaved.

The force warned that anti-social behaviour during the "family-friendly event" could see those responsible ejected from the site.

Ch Insp Neil added: "People have paid hard-earned money to attend Belladrum at the weekend and it would be a shame to spoil that by over indulging in alcohol.

"The message is drink sensibly, moderate behaviour and enjoy the weekend for all the right reasons and don't run the risk of missing the event."
