The pair, aged 13 and 14 from Eastleigh, remain under investigation.

They were arrested yesterday on suspicion of assault, cause of wasteful employment of police and use of threatening/abusive/insulting words/behaviour to cause harassment/alarm/distress.

It comes after paramedics from South Central Ambulance Service attended a call in Stranding Street, Eastleigh, at 5.30pm on Wednesday where they had been falsely informed someone inside was in cardiac arrest.
