A SCAM alert has been issued by bosses at a Hampshire theme park.

Paultons Park is warning customers about a rogue WhatsApp message containing a fake ticket offer.

Bosses at the theme park, near Romsey, say the message is 'not a genuine offer'.

They are urging customers to delete the text if they receive it.

In a statement on the park's official Twitter page, it said: "We have been made aware of a possible scam circulating via WhatsApp regarding Paultons Park tickets.

This is not a genuine offer or in anyway affiliated with Paultons Park.

"If you receive a message like this we urge you to delete it."

The theme park did not have a copy of the text and did not respond to a request for further information.
