Awards hope for Newquay under-age drinking project

It was set up a year ago to protect young people after two teenagers died while visiting the resort in 2009.

Police, residents, councils and businesses promote safety.

Lance Kennedy, Cornwall Council cabinet member for community safety and neighbourhoods, said: "The tragic events of summer 2009 attracted national interest and the partners' hard work since then has focused on letting people know that Newquay is a great place and we want people to help keep it that way."
