The government's anti-social behaviour champion says the country could learn lessons from the way Cornwall deals with booze-fuelled trouble.

The Duchy won £90 thousand to do just that, last year.

Now Baroness Newlove who is tasked with making our communities safer has been visiting schemes in Falmouth and Camborne.

She has praised the towns: "At the end of the day, we could put millions and millions into things and we're still no further on and by putting sticking plasters, we need to stop that. We need to actually understand the problems that they have within their communities.

"Everybody thinks they're on their own so when you recognise there's other areas doing this, it achieves other, greater things for the good. So, enabling these communities to actually further the programmes that they want to do and by speaking to the young people, communities then become more powerful and have a voice."
