A Cornish teenager who jumped fourteen feet from sand dunes at an end of exam party sparks a warning about underage drinking.

Police tell us the 16 year old girl had binged on vodka at Hayle Towans.

She has hurt her back.

PC John Fulker has this message for parents: "At the end of the day, adults make bad decisions when they've had too much alcohol. Children, with a complete lack of life experience and alcohol on board, make disastrous decisions.

"Some parents will allow their children to drink. But the problem is, that if they allow them to drink some at home and then they got hold of more booze elsewhere, it's multiplying the effect that that alcohol is going to have on those children, and it's, it's dangerous.

"We do need parents to be thinking about what their children are up to, what they could possibly be up to, and maybe actually just asking their children to be a little bit more responsible about telling them where they're going, who they're going to be with."
