Crime has plummeted by a quarter in Newquay.

A zero-tolerance approach to trouble in the resort is being thanked.

Over the summer over a thousand bottles of booze were poured away.

134 underage drinkers were caught, 54 people were banned, and 80 fake IDs seized.

Dave Sleeman speaks for residents:

"In the evening the town centre was a no go area, it was that bad. People lying drunk in the gutters, blood everywhere. It was absolutely horrendous. That is no longer the case. The police have actually made it acceptable and tidied up the town."

Superintendent Julie Whitmarsh says there has also been a crackdown on things like men wearing Mankinis in the street:  

I recall not this year but last year being in town at around 2 o'clock in the afternoon and there was a stag there wearing a nappy. Just a general large sized Pampers nappy, held on with sellotape. That's at 2 or 3 o'clock in the afternoon and there are families around. That's the kind of thing we've been trying really hard to combat"
