A luxury Scottish wedding venue is at the centre of a police probe after brides claim events were deliberately double-booked, leaving their wedding plans up in the air.

Cops launched a probe into suspected “fraudulent activity” at Guthrie Castle in Angus, after the allegations were made on social media.

It is alleged that a former member of staff double-booked weddings and pocketed the deposits before doing a "runner".

A wedding held at the venue on Saturday was reportedly double-booked with a conference.

So far the castle has not made any comment on the claims but the castle's normal website has been taken down.
