Warning signs erected as part of Newquay drink drive

Warning signs have been installed as part of an underage drinking awareness drive in Newquay.

According to the Morning Advertiser, Newquay Safe Partnership's Street Safe Scheme installed ten new warning signs that read "Unfenced cliff ahead" on a cliff top at Fistral Beach, after two teenagers fell and died there last year.

The scheme has also offered help and guidance to teenagers found drunk and incapable on the streets of the town and given wristbands out for an alcohol-free club night for teenagers.

Trading Standards conducted test purchases at pubs and nightclubs across the area and found only one that failed – a failure rate of four per cent.

Joint Newquay Safe Partnership project manager, superintendent Julie Whitmarsh, told the newspaper hard work across the community had paid off: "This has been a very challenging period for the town and we have seen real commitment from so many different sectors to make a real difference to Newquay."

This month a member of the coastguard in Scotland called for the public to take proper notice of warning signs after a girl fell from a cliff whilst out walking in Fife.
