Off licence banned after serving under aged customers

Daily Echo: Off licence banned after serving under aged customers Off licence banned after serving under aged customers

A HAMPSHIRE off-licence has been banned from selling alcohol after serving under-age customers.

First Stop in West Street, Portchester, had its licence revoked at a hearing on Wednesday.

It follows an undercover sting by police during which two under-18s were sold alcohol in two test purchases in November and December last year following further suspicions that staff served a minor.

Fareham Borough Council’s licensing panel enforced the order brought before them by police and Hampshire County Council.

The company was given 21 days to appeal before the order is imposed on Wednesday, April 2.

Surely the Police need to be prosecuted for causing a minor to buy alcohol?
If it hadn't been for that the offence would not have been commited by the staff.
