SECURITY has been tightened at a Moray air base after a man in disguise 
was allowed to walk in unchallenged by guards, a Ministry of Defence 
spokeswoman said.

The security breach happened when Gary Souter, 19, of 13 Dean Terrace, 
Lossiemouth, approached the main gate of RAF Lossiemouth on December 5 
last year dressed in combat clothes and a long black jacket and hat, 
with his face covered by a scarf.

He appeared at Elgin Sheriff Court on Monday and admitted breaking the 
peace at the base.

The court was told that two guards on duty had been busy checking other 
people’s identification when Souter walked past them. They saw him 
heading towards the medical centre and shouted at him to stop, but he 
ignored them and ran off.
