370 Bottles and Cans of Booze Seized from Teens in Newquay
7:01am 25th June 2012
A group of teenagers has been caught bringing 370 bottles and cans of booze on holiday to Newquay.
Police have seized the haul of drink from six sixteen year olds in the resort.
They are launching their annual crackdown on trouble in the town as post-exam parties begin.
The town's inspector Ian Drummond-Smith said, “Each year we are aware that parents provide alcohol, sometimes in large quantities, to their underage teenagers, and then leave them in Newquay with their friends – the risks to their children are evident, but they do not appear to consider these in the actions that they take."
Rob Andrew, Newquay Safe Joint Project Manager said, "One of the priorities of Newquay Safe from the start was to address the concerns of residents about the potentially intimidating atmosphere they experienced on the main streets of Newquay during the later afternoon and early evening at weekends and the impact it had on themselves, visiting families and on a number of local businesses.
"The 'No Nonsense' campaign in 2011 had a major impact and helped address these concerns and it is great that it is being repeated in 2012."
Extra officers will be drafted into Newquay from 30th June to mid-September to enforce the crackdown.
