A teenager was found unconscious through excessive drinking when police stopped an out of control Hallowe'en party last night.

 Worried residents called police to the party involving up to 60 teenagers in North Baddesley.

Officers despersed the crowd that had gathered at the Sandy Lane sports pavillion  shortly before 9pm.

A 16-year-old was found unconscious and was taken to Southampton General Hospital where he was treated for the effects of excess alcohol.

The parent alerted the police had intended to drop off her daughter at the party, but told police the venue was full of underage youngsters who were drinking.

On arrival, police found only one adult, a 50-year-old North Baddesley woman, in charge of the large group.

They also found large quantities of alcohol - cider, beer, lager and spirits - which was seized.

A local councillor was called to lock the pavilion, and police officers guided youngsters away from the area.
