Children are being warned not to put lives at risk by playing on frozen lakes in Hampshire.

The appeal comes from police after youngsters were seen walking across ice on Charlton Lakes in Andover.

Sgt Dean Wakelen said: "My plea is for people not to walk on frozen lakes, however thick you think the ice.

"Adults who are trying to rescue someone else or a dog can also get into difficulties and the consequences can be very serious."
