Almost 100 people were arrested in Devon and Cornwall during the New Year's Eve celebrations, police have said. Devon and Cornwall Police revealed there were 97 arrests – all for alcohol-related offences – a drop of about 50% on the figure for last year. The force said the drop in arrests could be down to revellers drinking less and looking after each other better. It also said more police officers had been out on the streets. Inspector for Newquay and St Columb Major Dave Meredith said he was "very pleased" with the operation in Newquay, which saw reduced disorder.
