Cornish streets filled with police cars and riot vans because of boozy trouble.

Official research claims half of all violent crime in Cornwall is linked to alcohol.

One Duchy mum of four has told Pirate FM she may move house because she is so fed up with drink fuelled problems.

According to new statistics one in three Duchy neighbourhoods are affected.

Karen Mitchell is from Saltash:

"It hasn't got any better that's for sure. I've lived here since I was nine, I'm 35 now and I want to move out now. It's drink, drugs, the lot of it and I don't want the kids to grow up around it anymore. Personally I've had enough of it.

"It was pretty bad when they broke up for Christmas, fights break out. Where I live there's always police cars and riot vans around and it's all alcohol related.  It just usually starts off with disagreements between one and another and then all the fights break out."
