Bottles crammed with more alcohol than our weekly limit could be pulled from the shelves in Redruth.

Officials have asked shops and off-licences to target stuff like high-strength cider.

It comes as part of a drive by Safer Redruth to cut booze-fuelled trouble. A similiar scheme has already had considerable success in Camborne.

Sergeant Tom Patrick from Devon and Cornwall Police, said: "One of the initiatives identified by Safer Redruth has been to secure the support of local off licences to remove high strength, low cost alcohol from its shelves.

"Police officers together with licensing officers from Cornwall Council have visited stores in the town centre to secure their support. We are delighted with the co-operation we have received from all three Co-op stores and from Greens Newsagents."

Cornwall Council Licensing Compliance Manager Bob Mears saidL "Although retailers who are licensed to sell alcohol are legally able to display all the ranges they offer, those we have spoken to have taken on board the point.

"With some of the tree litre bottles of strong ciders on sale we are looking at 22.5 units of alcohol in just one of these bottles. This is around ten times the recommended daily limit for a woman."
