It is claimed too many people think it is OK to behave badly when they are drunk in Cornwall.

The Police and Crime Commissioner is starting a consultation on how to stop booze-fuelled trouble..

It will mean chatting to students and locals in places like Truro, Launceston, Stithians and Saltash.

Then it will be down to Lisa Vango to explain how they are going to tackle the biggest problems: "The extent to which people are entering towns and cities already significantly drunk as a result of consuming alcohol at home with friends and in social settings. And the other is that people think that it is generally considered to be culturally acceptable to behave badly when you are drunk.

"We're certainly not saying that alcohol misuse or bad behaviour fuelled by alcohol when people are out in bars and clubs is the only problem. It is not by far. There are serious issues that we need to confront in relation to the links between domestic violence and alcohol and the links between alcohol and sexual offences and violent offences."
