Mankini ban helps cut crime

A coastal town's decision to "ban" mankinis from public areas has helped reduce anti-social behaviour and resulted in a boom for the local tourist economy, police and community leaders have said.

Officers in the Cornish resort of Newquay said a "robust" attitude to inappropriate behaviour, including the wearing of the skimpy male bikini-style bathing costumes, has helped shed its "Wild West" image as a haven for stag and hen parties, in favour of a family-friendly destination.
