Thousands of people are in Newquay and Watergate Bay for Boardmasters.

The international surf and music festival started on Wednesday.

It is being headlined by the likes of Basement Jaxx and former Falmouth student turned Brit winner Ben Howard.

Al Green from Cornwall's health promotions service is handing out four thousand survival packs to teenagers.

Al said: "When young people are in festivals, staying safe sometimes isn't the first thing on your mind. The first thing is about having fun, sometimes alcohol goes with that. It's just more about saying to young people, 'actually, go out, have a great time, but think about the consequences of what might happen and do a few things that might keep yourselves safe'.

"It's not about the worst case scenario. It is around the thing about, you might have one too many drinks, you might think you're okay, but actually that's when the danger point can be. So it really is about keeping young people safe and reducing those incidents before they happen."
