Warning to pranksters
3:50pm Tuesday 21st August 2012 in Eastleigh
FIREFIGHTERS have warned pranksters to think of the consequences before taking part in potentially dangerous dares after a major emergency operation was launched last night, wasting the precious time of the emergency services.
But when the emergency services got there, just before 8.30pm, it turned out that the three men, two aged in their teens, were not in any trouble and told police that it was a dare that had gone too far.
