Cornwall and Devon police are cracking down on hate crime.

Young people are being taught about diversity and bullying.

It is as Pirate FM learns that two in three children in the UK are bullied at some point in their lives.

The Local Heroes initiative promotes values of tolerance, honesty, fairness and respect.

School children from across the Duchy attended a workshop in Newquay led by local sporting heroes.

Commonwealth Games gold medallist, Katherine Endacott, and international cyclist for UK Youth, Chris Opie, delivered sessions covering hate and mate crime, racism, homophobia and transphobia, gender discrimination, disability and sub-culture bullying. Each topic included information on cyber-bullying.

Inspector Ryan Doyle said: "When you are in your teenage years, you start finding out who you are and you start firming up your own opinions on the world. I think it is only right to give young people all the information they need at this stage, so they know more about the world and people in the world around them.

"We are educating and informing people at a young age, so that we breathe a much more positive culture. As they go on in life and leave school, go to college and go into employment, they are able to take that with them throughout their life."

Cyclist Chris Opie said: "I firmly believe that if people feel self-confident and comfortable, they will be able to achieve much more and have a far better quality of life. If you don't give people the skills and tools they need to do that, then they are really going to struggle."
