Football fans in a Devon city are being reminded not to drink and drive during the World Cup.

Posters and leaflets are being distributed to bars and clubs in a joint campaign by Devon and Cornwall Police and Plymouth City Council.

The target area for the campaign is Plymouth City Centre, Mutley Plain and the Barbican.

The city's road safety officer said people watching matches should make arrangements for their trip home.

Katrice Deves said: "If possible, arrange a lift, get a taxi or catch the bus.

"If you have to take the car, car share with your mates and elect a designated driver."

Fans have also been reminded that Plymouth Citybus has an extensive service across the city.

Company spokesman Phil Smith said: "Bus passengers can enjoy the football with a few drinks and need not worry about driving their car or where to park it."
