POLICE have warned parents may be fined if their children are caught breaching coronavirus rules - stressing they could prove to be "expensive" amid the pandemic.

Three teenage girls were discovered in Fleming Avenue, North Baddesley, at around 10pm on Sunday (February 21).

The force said they were tipped off by locals after the trio was spotted being a "nuisance", according to a Facebook post by Test Valley Cops.

The 13-year-old, 15-year-old and 17-year-old were warned about the Covid rules before being dispersed. 

Officers said parents "may be fined" if they catch the girls breaking the rules again, stressing parents should know where their children are to avoid being slapped with a fine.

Under the current lockdown rules, you cannot leave your home to meet socially with anyone you do not live with or are not in a support bubble with.
