‘We were also made aware of youths jumping into the water from the M27 bridge ...again police were informed and our patrol tasked to respond.  We have been asked to circulate that there is Dispersal Order for the area around the Hamble jetty in place which began at 1600 hrs today and continues until 1600 hours on Sunday.

‘Sadly, these powers have become necessary (and we are grateful to the work of the Neighbourhood policing team) so that others may continue to enjoy the river in this fine spell of weather.’
