A police source confirmed an incident outside Gate Four of the site at Royal Liverpool Golf Club, off Meols Drive.

Pictures emerged on social media of the buggy, owned by tournament organisers the Royal & Ancient, on a banking outside the gate.

No-one from Merseyside Police was available to comment.

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."
