Welsh police could adopt curfew

The voluntary curfew in Redruth could be adopted by another police force.

Officers from Barry in South Wales have been observing the scheme in the Close Hill area of the town and said they were impressed by the idea.

Barry officers said they have similar anti social behaviour problems in their home town and were considering trying the voluntary curfew out.

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.
