Police are trying to find a malicious caller who cancelled a wedding reception just hours before a couple were due to get married.

Emma Moschakis, aged 25, only found out the evening event had been cancelled by someone who said they were her when she went around to the Archers Road social club in Southampton, Hampshire, and was told by staff.

She had arrived on the eve of her wedding last Saturday to Anthony Moschakis to decorate the room for the reception of 100 guests.

The mother-of-two from Southampton said: "I could not believe it and I was sick for about 20 minutes."

Family and friends then rallied around and found another venue at the last minute but some guests did not find out.

A Hampshire Police spokesman confirmed officers were investigating who made the phone call that cancelled the event.
