Police in Newquay are cracking down on inflatable sex toys and T-shirts with obscene images.
Officers plan to confiscate any offensive items after the town has earned a reputation as the UK’s party capital and residents are worried that the behaviour of drunken revellers is forcing families away from the town centre.
Dave Sleeman, of the residents’ association, said: “I saw a guy naked, hanging out of a window, waving a sex toy and shouting at women. It was 10am on a Saturday.”
Insp Ian Drummond-Smith said: “People come to have a good time. The majority don’t want to see these things.
“This will be the first time we have done this and we intend to store the items until the end of the summer.”
