A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesperson said: “The warmer weather will inevitably attract youngsters to the seafront along with their vehicles and some of their behaviour will cause concern for the public.

“Police have many planned operations to help stop and perturb individuals, with hopefully the message spreading out to stay away from the area, or face having your vehicle scrutinised by police to comply in every way, with correct documentation and lawful modifications.

“Those that do not adhere to police requests will be prosecuted and dealt with.”
