Police 'winning battle' against under-age drinking in Newquay

Police in Newquay say they're winning the battle to cut under age drinking and rowdyism in the town.

They say the number of arrests over the past two weeks is down on previous years and overall crime has been reduced.

Officers made 257 separate alcohol seizures from under 18s.

Inspector Ian Drummond-Smith from Devon and Cornwall Police says most of the alcohol is being brought down to Cornwall, although they are investigating one off licence for selling vodka to a 16-year old.
