Over 20% of off-licences and bars fail under-age test in Lancashire

Staff in off-licences and bars in parts of Lancashire have been hit with on-the-spot fines for failing to make ID checks and selling booze to youngsters. Officers, assisted by Trading Standards and a group of teenage volunteers, carried out a 3 week test purchase operation.

It was designed to ensure those working in licensed premises were preventing under age sales. In total 43 premises were visited in Lancaster and Morecambe, with 11 venues failing to make the necessary checks and enabling two 16-year-old girls to buy 10 bottles of wine, four double vodkas and four large glasses of wine.

Ten premises were visited in the Wyre area, with two failing to ask two 16-year-old girls for ID. The teens were able to buy two bottles of wine. Staff will now be issued with £80 fines and the licensee of the premises will have to undergo a surgery with police.
