Police have warned visitors to a number of North-east weekend events that alcohol-fuelled disorder or anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated.
It comes after several people were charged after fights broke out at last weekend’s Echt Show.
The New Deer Show and Marquee, as well as Highland shows in Stonehaven and Tomintoul, are set to take place this weekend.
Officers are urging people to take responsibility for their actions to avoid a repeat of disorder
Local Area Commander Chief Inspector Murray Main said: “If any anti-social behaviour is detected at these events then we will have no option but to deploy increased police resources in the future.
“That is certainly not what I want and I am sure it’s not what the vast majority of attendees want either.
“My message is clear – have fun by all means, but be sensible and don’t act in a way you will regret the next morning.
“If you choose to offend and are not dealt with at the time, retrospective inquiries may well be carried out to ensure you are brought to justice or banned from future events.”
