A scheme to cut booze fuelled bother in Newquay secures a cash windfall.

Newquay Safe has won £99,000 from the government.

Bosses in the resort say they want to use the money to bring in street marshalls, as well as supporting the police in their clampdown on fake ID's and proxy buying.

It comes as reps visit London to launch a new nationwide project.

Work in the resort is being held up as an example, after anti-social behaviour fell by thirty per cent.

Dave Sleeman, Chairman of the Newquay Town Residents Association said: "Newquay is leading the way nationally on a number of issues and to have our work recognised and showcased by Baroness Newlove is a great accolade. To be awarded a grant from the Home Office as well makes it a great week for Newquay. The money is very welcome as everything we have achieved so far has been with very little funds. Money isn’t the only solution to every problem but it will help!"

Baroness Helen Newlove is Britain's Champion for Active, Safer Communities.

She said: "The tragic loss of two promising young lives galvanised an entire community to unite and to reclaim their town. Newquay Safe has shown what can be done when a whole community pulls together. They recognised the problems they faced and have worked tirelessly to overcome them. This hard work in dealing with the impact that alcohol has in the community is delivering real results and I want other communities facing similar problems to be able to learn from their example."
