Police and other agencies in Newquay have launched a summer campaign to reduce crime and disorder.

The Newquay Safe Partnership said the No Nonsense 2012 campaign would build on work in 2011.

People with potentially offensive inflatables or are wearing mankini thongs will be targeted and street disorder will not be tolerated.

The campaign would be supported by a new network of ID scanners in six pubs and clubs, the partnership said.

The scanners would not only check for forged documents, but would also share data on banned persons to ensure that information about someone banned by one pub will distributed to all landlords in the town.

The 2011 campaign saw 104 people banned from the town centre, police said.

The partnership - which involves police, councils, businesses and residents - was set up in 2009 to crack down on underage drinking after the deaths of two teenagers in the town.
