Other drivers will be reported for careless driving, construction and use offences, licence offences, MOT/ registration offences and dangerous driving the force said.

Four others were also warned with regard to their behaviour and a number of warnings were also issued for other matters.

Road Policing Sergeant Angus Murray said: "It is disappointing that a significant minority of drivers attending this event thought they could get away with a variety of road traffic offences.

"Anyone attending events like this one should make sure their vehicle is roadworthy and they drive within the law and with consideration for other road users.

"We would encourage anyone with concerns about illegal activity on the roads - it could be speeding, driving under the influence or any other offence - to contact Police Scotland on 101 or 999 in an emergency."
