Cornish families are getting a new way to report antisocial behaviour.

An online form is being launched, letting people flag up everything from threats and noise to underage drinking and vandalism.

Any reports made through the Safer Cornwall website will be passed on to a case worker, who will then look into them.

To report any problems where you live, visit the site here.

Julian Commons, the Duchy's Anti-social Behaviour Team Manager, said: "It's crucial. Anti-social behaviour, the cumulative impact of it, can have a devastating effect on people's lives and their communities, so what we want to do is to encourage people not to put up with it, not to suffer in silence.

"Antisocial behaviour could happen any time in a 24 hour period, and what we're looking to do, whether it be through traditional telephone reporting or through online reporting, is to really open up as many avenues as we can to encourage people to report."

Geoff Brown, Cornwall Council cabinet member for Homes and Communities said: "Antisocial behaviour is usually perpetrated by a few individuals who choose to cause alarm, harassment or distress to others and disrupt people's lives. This malicious, thoughtless and inconsiderate behaviour has the potential to blight community life; it is not acceptable and must not be tolerated.

"It is important that the public are easily able to seek help if antisocial behaviour affects them. This new system will help people receive an appropriate response from our ASB team to address their concerns".

Des Tidbury, the Chair of the Board of Safer Cornwall said: "Our recent 'Have your say' survey identified that antisocial behaviour is an important issue for many people in Cornwall. This new reporting system will help ensure a swift robust response is made by Safer Cornwall partner agencies to address these concerns".
