Summer patrols start in Newquay to stop a return to its party town image.

Streetsafe is gearing up for the summer influx of visitors and teenagers celebrating the end of their GCSEs.

It will mean teams on hand to help those who are wrecked or reckless.

John Higgins lost his son Paddy when the sixteen year old plunged from cliffs on a night out in the resort.

He is laying into parents who send their children away with suitcases of booze.

He said: "It has become almost a rite of passage that it's a normal thing to do.

"It's where they are just given an excessive amount, or are encouraged to drink excessive amounts, at whatever age, that they are not used to handling, that accidents will happen.

"They got separated on their way home, Paddy went looking for one of the other boys, and on route he ended up on the beach and decided to try and climb a cliff and he failed, and died."
