Pirate FM has learnt that there is a big link between alcohol and the number of assaults where victims need treatment in Cornwall and Devon.

According to our police force, 72% involve drink.

Duchy Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Hogg is holding think-tank sessions in local communities as part of a new crackdown.

He says it has to stop: "Every day we are seeing a disproportionate amount of policing effort and efforts in the health service all being directed, in a way needlessly, towards clearing up after this harm caused by alcohol.

"I sometimes doubt whether the community as a whole understands the true extent of that damage into the healthcare system, into employment, into the wider world of our communities; the damage, to my mind, is immense."
