Police Scotland has reported children are still sneaking into the derelict site of the former Interfloor building in Dumfries, calling it a dangerous playground.

Security has been increased at the site after a meeting of the Local Resilience Partnership (LRP) multi-agency group.

Police and and Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Community Safety team will be patrolling the area both day and night.

The site at Interfloor has been fenced off for very good reasons and is clearly a dangerous place to go into. I would urge parents to ensure that they highlight this to any children who might think of venturing into the area.
