Fake ID's recovered

Wadebridge Police will continue to tackle underage drinking at Polzeath Beach by keeping up patrols in the evenings and also asking those that look under 18 for proof of ID. Below is a picture of a number of fake Identity cards that have been seized by just one licenced premise in Polzeath over several weeks! Staff at licenced premises undergo training so they can recognise fake ID so if you are trying to use it, just don't bother!

Wadebridge Police have developed strong partnerships with key agencies in Polzeath, such as the Beach Ranger Service, Polzeath Together, the Police Alcohol Licensing Team, the Cornwall Council ASB Team and Environmental Protection Teams.

PC Amy Honeywill from Wadebridge Neighbourhood Team has the following message, 'Please be aware that Police will be continuing to conduct patrols in and around Polzeath beach during the summer months to tackle underage drinking and Anti-social behaviour. We will be checking that those who have alcohol are over 18 and will continue working with the licenced premises to prevent underage drinking.
Over the recent weeks we have also seen children being dropped at the beach car park in Polzeath by their parents late in the evening. Some parents have supplied their children with alcohol. This is not acceptable, and we are asking that parents act responsibly and know where their children are and what they are up to'

We want to thank all licenced premises in Polzeath who have been working hard and in partnership to tackle underage drinking in the area. Underage drinking and the anti-social behaviour that arises from drinking will not be tolerated.
