    Oh Dear: Sun, sea and Asbos

    I thought we'd off-shored all this sort of thing to Ibiza?

    Most people count down the days until their summer holidays, but what's life like for local residents when tourists descend?

    Last year windows were smashed and tyres slashed. People urinated in doorways and fences were ripped up for firewood.

    This year more than £40,000 has been stumped up to pay for extra policing and security, and an Anti-social Behaviour Order (Asbo) has been obtained to curb bad behaviour.

    But this isn't hooded yobs creating chaos on some inner-city sink estate, it's rich young holidaymakers running amok in the picturesque Cornish town of Polzeath and nearby Daymer Bay.

    "Summer is certainly no holiday for us," says local resident Henry Dales. "We're under siege from these teenagers. They gather on the beach every night, get drunk, take drugs, fight and rip up anything that isn't nailed down to burn on fires."
