One of Cornwall's top cops insists a project to tackle drunken trouble can survive.

The Newquay Safe Partnerhip was set up four years ago, after two teenagers plunged to their deaths from cliffs on nights out in the resort.

Pirate FM told you the council is pulling thousands of pounds of its funding.

Inspector Dave Meredith from Devon and Cornwall Police, said: "The fundamental pillarstone to the success of Newquay Safe and its very stability resides on the fact that all the partners stand together. That is continuing, that will continue, and that has been the very strength of Newquay Safe.

"There is no question about the future of Newquay Safe at all.

"We may have to evolve and adjust slightly to account for the lack of funding, but Newquay Safe will certainly continue, it will certainly evolve, it will go from strength to strength."
