Pirate FM has been out with police who are cracking down on underage drinking in Newquay.

They use stop and search powers to make sure teenagers aren't bringing booze into the town.

Operation Brunel was set up after several youngsters plunged to their deaths from cliffs on nights out.

At Newquay station on a sunny, holiday season lunchtime families and visitors are being met by police off the train.

They are checking for anyone underage who have stocked up on alcohol ahead of arriving.

Arriving on holiday from Bristol Ellie and her mates had their suitcases searched and their bottles of cider, beer, rum and wine confiscated. She said: "Yeah, I guess it's fair to be honest. We're not allowed it. I get iNewquay postert - it's to protect other people."

A follow-on letter is being sent home to their parents.

Any fuss - and they could have been on the next train home.

One of her mates added: "We're a lovely bunch of people. We just came down here to relax for a bit. It's a shame this has happened - but it's understandable."


Natasha Matthews from the anti-social behaviour team has told Pirate FM parents buying the booze for their kids could be prosecuted: "People are coming in for the weekend then leaving again not realising what damage they are causing for the local residents.

"We do realise they are going to have access to alcohol - so it's about educating them as well."
