I am out of touch or something (?) but why were two 15year old girls in Newquay with their parents consent ....

I would have concerns about letting my 17 year old son do this!

What happened to parental responsibility

Firstly, you are assuming the parents knew where they were, I seem to recall when I was that age that 15 yr old girls used to lie to their parents that A was staying at B's house and vice versa! But, since Codders isn't around I'll need to step in and suggest that actually this is part of the way we learn and develop when the nanny state isn't interefering in our every move. Certainly when I was that age there were camping and youth hostel trips etc. Although the destinations were somewhat more remote than Newquay.

Perhaps more newsworthy down here because it comes on the back of this.

Are you deliberately trying to be a tit? Or, are you a tit, you tit.

Our generation may have gone in for a bit of sneaky drinking, but weren't delivered, underage, to some far flung destination which had a more than a dubious reputation. If you consider this normal parental behavior, goodness knows what sort of upbringing you've had.

Last paragraph gave a small clue

"On Tuesday, Devon and Cornwall Police issued a warning to teenage holidaymakers about the dangers of alcohol and high cliffs. "
