Police issue online dating advice

Don't invite strangers home, or to a hotel room

Police are advising individuals using dating websites to practice caution.

It's after a number of reports to officers by women who've met with prospective partners who don't fit their online description.

Inspector Gavin Callow posted a warning on social media prompting bachelors and spinsters to make appropriate checks before inviting strangers into their homes, or a hotel room.

He says it's because police are only called out when dates turn sour.
