Christmas anti-drink drive campaign in Devon and Cornwall is helped by a convicted student talking about his experience
The service from Newquay to Gatwick has now been guaranteed for at least another four years
Devon and Cornwall police have begun their Christmas drink-driving campaign.
They say officers will be carrying out more roadside checks in the evenings and early mornings.
It's hoped the campaign will show the implications of being caught over the limit. Police breathalysed more than 2,000 drivers across the region last December. This Plymouth student was one of them.

Flybe has been working hard with Newquay Cornwall Airport over the past couple of months to try and secure a satisfactory resolution for Cornwall to retain a crucial lifeline air link to and from London. This is critical both for leisure and business travellers who also need the security of a schedule that allows the opportunity for convenient day returns. Flybe is therefore very pleased to have agree a commercial deal with the airport that secures the seamless operation of this key route until the end of October next year.
The airline Flybe is expected to agree a deal with Newquay Airport today which will see it continuing to operate flights to London Gatwick until 25 October 2014 - Cornwall's only air link to the capital.
Meanwhile, Cornwall Council is applying for government funding to preserve the route after that date.
Cornwall Council have backed plans to turn land currently used as a running track into a retail park.
Earlier this year, hundreds gathered outside the Carn Brea leisure centre in Camborne to protest against plans to sell the whole site.
Under current proposals, only the running track would be sold and moved to a new home at Redruth School.
The proceeds would then be used to refurbish the leisure centre.
