Newquay pays tribute to inspector
POLICE and community leaders gathered at Newquay police station on Thursday to bid a fond farewell to the town's respected inspector, Ian Drummond-Smith.
The father-of-two, 35, was presented with a special plaque and mug to thank him for his dedicated service to the town. He has been promoted to chief inspector in Plymouth.
Mr Drummond-Smith has held the resort's top post for 18 months, but began as a special in the town in 1998.
In his time as inspector he has introduced a number of hard-hitting initiatives including a crackdown on glass attacks, the introduction of ID scanners to spot forgeries, and a ban on lewd props and clothing such as mankinis.
