Alcohol sold to youngsters

Have your say

AN off licence which was caught selling booze to under 18s during repeated test purchase operations is to have its licence reviewed.

Police have sent youngsters into the Nisa Todays store on Barber Road, Crookesmoor, Sheffield, four times in the last year and they were served without being challenged.

Officers said the store supervisor had been offered places on a training course which covered asking customers for identification.

In a report, police said: “No regular system of age-related checks or challenges are made, leading to the presumption that alcohol is regularly traded to persons under aged with little or no regard to the law or licensing objectives.”

Sheffield Council’s licensing board will review the licence on Thursday.
