Have your say

A BAR is to be shut down for 48 hours after it was caught selling alcohol to underage volunteers.

Aruba, on Corporation Street, Chesterfield, sold booze to teenagers on two occasions within a three month period during test purchase operations carried out by police, Derbyshire Trading Standards and Chesterfield Council.

The bar is now being forced to close for 48 hours between this Friday and Sunday.

Eight members of staff caught serving the alcohol were issued with £80 fixed penalty notices.
