Man arrested after golf buggy crashes out of the Open

A man apparently attempted to drive a golf buggy out of the Royal Liverpool Golf Club's gates, as the world's top golfers prepared for the Open at Hoylake.

A police source confirmed that a man had been arrested after an incident at the well-known golf championship, outside Gate Four of the site.

Pictures of the buggy, owned by tournament organisers the Royal & Ancient, appeared on social media, apparently showing it crashed onto a banking outside the gate.

Johnnie Cole-Hamilton, executive director of championships at the R&A, said: "Police are now investigating and I cannot say any more at this time."
