A HAMPSHIRE theme park has issued a warning to families over a scam circulating on messaging app WhatsApp.

The scam claims to be offering five free passes to 500 families at Paultons Park.

In a tweet, a spokesman warned: "This is not a genuine offer and is not associated with Paultons Park.

"We advise that you do not click the link or share the message."

The warning comes after many schools broke up for the summer holidays this week.
