Responding to reports that ScotRail have installed a high-pitch Mosquito sound device to deter young people from gathering at Hamilton train station, Scottish Liberal Democrat justice spokesperson Liam McArthur MSP said:
“The children's commissioner and many human rights groups have argued that these devices discriminate against children and young people.
“While it’s right for ScotRail to take steps to protect station staff, these devices are not going to stop determined criminals. Instead they are punishing the vast majority of innocent young people who use the station to get to work or school.”
“ScotRail should swat these Mosquito proposals.”
