However, he had strong words for the people blighting Fraserburgh beach.

“It is actually disgusting. It really is unacceptable,” he said of people failing to clean up after themselves.

Calling these people “irresponsible” and “mindless,” he added: “All the hard work that has taken place has been undone.

“We’ve really all got to pull together.

“I’m proud to say I live in the town, but everyone has got to play their part.

“Folk are just openly drinking and leaving their rubbish behind.”
