A MAKESHIFT "naughty corner" was set up yesterday after teenagers were allegedly caught in possession of drugs at an underage music festival.
The care unit, set up by police monitoring the Good Life event at Randwick Racecourse, was a hive of activity as officers dealt with dozens of teens caught allegedly breaking the law.
One girl was led away in handcuffs and placed in a paddy wagon while others were held until their parents arrived to collect them. Random breath tests and pat-down searches were also carried out by private security staff inside the venue.
A Good Life spokeswoman said the event had "gone smoothly", despite a few misbehaving teens: "The majority of people were fantastic ... it's been a great day."
