New Fears Over Newquay Exam Parties
3:20pm 13th July 2012
There is a warning parents need more information on Newquay, before sending their children on post exam parties.
In the last week police have had to deal with drunken girls urinating in the streets.
Another 16 year old was found wandering round the beach on her own.
Sergeant Reggie Butler thinks mums and dads are in the dark:
"There's this Enid Blyton novel image of Newquay with its long hair surfers and it's all really relaxed and there isn't a problem so they think 'Oh well we'll send the kids down, at least we know what alcohol they've got' and they have no idea what it is actually like"
"It's not a suitable environment for children which is what 16 year olds are in effect"
"It's getting better, we're getting there and we're able to control it. But at the end of the day we still need to have the parents onside. They need to have a realistic picture of what they're sending their kids down to and have some sort of responsibility for them"
