Police Scotland has launched an investigation after footage of three Campbeltown officers allegedly engaging in sex acts was shared on social media.

The video, which has been widely circulated online, was filmed from a flat opposite the property in which the three were located.

It shows two men and a woman, who were off-duty at the time of the recording.

Those who filmed the video could now face criminal charges as it is an offence to record people without their knowledge or consent, or disclose of an intimate photograph or film.

A Police Scotland spokesperson told the Courier: ‘We are aware of reports of mobile phone footage being shared online. Enquiries are at an early stage.’

No officers have been suspended in relation to the incident.
