Glasgow cops will patrol a city park over the next few days to crackdown on boozy teens indulging in anti-social behaviour.

Police Scotland is sending officers into Kelvingrove Park in a bid to stop the West End beauty spot becoming a magnet for trouble during the good weather.

The proactive tactic by officers comes after a number of high profile violent incidents - all of which happened as temperatures soared.

Teens finishing up school for summer have been warned they will charged if they are caught drinking alcohol in the park. 

Evening Times:

A force spokesman said: "Extra patrols will be in Kelvingrove Park over the next couple of days. 

"Weather looks nice and it's the end of the school term.

"Remind all person enjoying the park to act responsibly.

"Drinking alcohol in the park is an offence. 

"Don't take the chance of being charged."

Evening Times:

The Police Scotland operation comes as the Met Office warned temperatures could peak in the high 20s over the next few days. 

In April, a teenager was left permanently scarred after he was attacked in the park. The 16-year-old was with a girl, also 16, when a gang pounced on him.

in a separate incident, arrests were also made when trouble flared between gangs of teens. At least two teens were taken to hospital for cuts and concussion.

In May, West End residents complained of noisy teens causing havoc after drinking in the sun.  

Evening Times:

Glasgow City Council previously said they would target the problem by using mobile CCTV and deploying enforcement officers during busy times at the park. 

Our reader poll revealed a majority of people would support tougher measures being used to consume alcohol in Glasgow parks.

Evening Times:

In Tollcross, cops previously targeted boozy teens who congregated in an East End park - by cutting off their alcohol supply.

The force went after adults buying booze for teenagers in a bid to crackdown on anti-social behaviour in Tollcross Park.

Their tactic to target those involved in a 'proxy purchase' was deployed after fed-up Tollcross residents made as many as 18 calls a weekend to complain about anti-social behaviour in the park. Those calls dropped significantly through a number of measures taken by cops.
