Peaceful start for youth curfew

Police have said the first night of the voluntary curfew in Redruth passed off peacefully.

Operation Goodnight is part of a campaign to reduce anti-social behaviour over the summer holidays.

Parents have been urged to have under-10s home by 2000 BST and 16-year-olds off the streets by 2100 BST.

Some have said youngsters' rights are being infringed, but police said the scheme was about developing a greater sense of parental responsibility.
