HAMPSHIRE police are urging family members who do not live together to refrain from embracing.

This comes after officers in Waltham Chase had to speak to two youngsters earlier this week.

Winchester Cops tweeted: "We know it’s hard when you’ve not seen family for a long time but please do not run up to each other and give each other big hugs and kisses.
