Locals tell Pirate FM how boy racers have been ripping through a Cornish village, crashing into cars.

Parents in Nanpean near St Austell are worried that it has been happening near a primary school.

They have launched a Facebook campaign.

Local mum Rebecca Champion said: "He lost control after the corner, it was a Saturday afternoon and he crashed into my car and then the cars parked up behind that and then he rolled and ended up on his roof down by the bustop. We have got to know what the noise is when we hear a big bang like that."
