It's a game children have been playing in streets and playgrounds up and down the country for years. So when Bob Allen's 10 year old daughter Lilly told him that she's been given a police warning for drawing a hopscotch grid on a pavement - he was shocked.
Mr Allen says two policemen in a car drove up to his child and said it was illegal to draw on the ground as it was criminal damage. He's now lodged a complaint with Kent Police about what he's calling their heavy-handed behaviour. From Ramsgate, John Ryall reports.
