Cornish mums and dads are warned over the dangers of handing booze to their children.

It is as new research shows half of under eighteens who have had a drink, got it from their parents.

Now charity Drinkaware is setting up a new team of mums to offer advice.

Superintendent Julie Whitmarsh from Devon and Cornwall Police is one of them:

"Find out what you can about alcohol. Don't be afraid to have the conversation. Even if it's with you with a glass of alcohol in your hand, and your child's there saying 'why can't I?', take the opportunity. Take any opportunity there is to talk to your children about why it isn't appropriate for them to drink early.

"Certainly our experience in Newquay is that parents feel that it is okay to drop their children off with significant amounts of alcohol. On one occasion, one room with six teenagers in, we seized enough alcohol from that room that would last an adult male a full thirteen months."
