Police in Cornwall and Devon launch a Christmas crackdown on drink and drug driving.

Last December, almost 160 people were caught over the limit.

Around a third were under 25.

Inspector Richard Pryce says figures for young people are too high, especially for men: "Ultimately it's about making the roads out there a safer place for us all to be. Drink-driving is preventable. That makes death and injuries through drink-driving crashes preventable as well".
