Pirate FM has learnt a quarter of people in Cornwall are drinking dangerously.

Officials say too many are downing enough booze to breach safety levels - increasing the chances of violence or an early death.

It is as a summer crackdown starts on booze fuelled trouble in places like Penzance, St Austell and Liskeard.

"What will your drink cost?" also links alcohol, domestic abuse, accidents and poor health.

David Parkers heads up Safer Cornwall, he said: "What we're not trying to do is say to be people not to drink it's not very good for you, what we're trying to do is accept a sensible level of drinking, I like to have a drink and I'm sure lots of other people do, so it's just a question of getting that message across about sensible drinking rather than taking to excess.

"In the towns and the areas where we have done the work there has been a reduction, but it's a long term thing we're trying to do, we can't change a cultural attitude, which is what we're trying to do, overnight, and it's a sustained effort that we need to make over many years."
