Newquay gets a new weapon in the fight against booze-fuelled anti-social behaviour.

Scanners that know if ID is fake or if someone is barred are being rolled out.

Pubs and clubs will be able to issue a flash-ban  that gets sent out across town.

Inspector Ian Drummond-Smith is in charge:

"We have this problem in all towns and cities across the UK, but hopefully what it shows is that we're doing something about it in Newquay. We're bringing these scanners in, and we've managed to get some money from the Home Office to try and introduce more of the scanners into town, because the more pubs and clubs that have them, the more effective the system's going to be.

"These could really reduce crime and disorder, because banned people will be banned from all of the pubs and clubs. After they've thrown them out, then they can go onto their scanner, find their details from when they came into the club, and issue a twelve hour flash ban and that will go to all the other pubs and clubs in town that have got the scanners."
