The man in charge of keeping Cornwall and Devon safe has called on parents to picket shops selling legal highs.

Stores in Bodmin, Truro and St Austell have been targeted as part of a police crackdown.

Now the Police and Crime Commissioner said he was worried young people could lose their lives.

Tony Hogg has told Pirate FM he is more worried about their growth than banned substances.

He said: "We have our heads around those, we understand them, we are combatting the issue of illegal drugs, I believe, very well. The legal highs are on a growth path. I think they are worrying, I think they present a significant risk of harm.

"The law can't keep up with legislation against them because we don't know what substances are in them. So these substances are freely sold in shops and I believe they are endangering our young people."
