Police in Newquay are worried abandoned beer bottles could be used as weapons.

Drinking in the streets is already banned.

But officers say they have lost count of the number they have had to clear up

Sergeant Bob Murray says it is part of a zero tolerance summer:

"If these young people came down without alcohol we'd have very few problems. They're normally well behaved young people who go out and have a good time. When alcohol is introduced, especially the large amounts that some of them have consumed in the past then we start getting the problems"

"As with anybody drinking on the streets we'll seize alcohol from anybody doing that.  We look at safety on the beaches. They sometimes have had parties on the beach in the past, where they have had fires on the beach which is prohibited"
