Boozy Bother Arrests

A police operation to crack down on booze-fuelled bother bans two men from Newquay.

Twenty people were arrested across the bank holiday, over offences to do with drugs, fighting and being drunk and disorderly.

Alcohol was seized from more than 80 people.

But Devon and Cornwall Police tell us figures are down on last year.

Inspector Drummond-Smith says, "The weekend was marred by the tragic death of a 21 year old male. Otherwise, it was a quiet festival this year for the police. We made less arrests this year and in general everyone was very well behaved.  It is interesting to note that many of those arrested are local. At the height of the policing operation, forty officers patrolled Newquay on Saturday night and I hope that the visibility and strong enforcement helped to keep things calm".
