Police in Cornwall and Devon dish out a Super Sunday warning.

Patrols are out in force as the counties host a string of big events and thousands of visitors are expected to descend on holiday.

The force admits this first summer bank holiday traditionally poses a bit of a challenge, including illegal parties.

Inspector Steve Bradford is heading up a crackdown: "That can lead to disruption to the local communities in terms of noise nuisance but also through large numbers of people and sometimes there can be damage to the land."

He has this advice for party-goers: "Think carefully around attending and to make sure they enjoy the bank holidays in a safe and sensible manner.

"They often take place in rural and isolated areas where it's difficult to get to both in terms of the police response but also other emergency services and also for the local communities as well because of the impact that it has."
