St Albans teens in trouble in Newquay
TWO St Albans teenagers have had more than a brush with the law while on holiday in Newquay, Cornwall, this week.
In unrelated incidents, a 16-year-old girl was badly injured after a drunken tumble from her first-floor window and a 16-year-old boy was arrested after a disturbance.
The girl badly broke her arm and was taken to hospital, but released later that day.
Devon and Cornwall Police said they had spoken to the girl’s mother who had said: “I made it very clear to my daughter that I didn’t want her to go, but she went again my wishes.”
The teenage boy was arrested during a disturbance in East Street and found to be in possession of a Taser-style stun gun. He was bailed and must return to Newquay Police Station on September 6, pending forensic analysis of the gun. In the meantime, he has been banned from the town between 8pm and 6am.
