A 15 year old was employed to attempt to buy alcohol at branches of the Co-op, Sainsbury’s. Morrisons, Tesco and several independents in the City & Holbeck division of West Yorkshire Police.
Sgt Rob Fullilove of the Leeds district licensing department said: “I am pleased to see managers and supervisors taking a more proactive approach by monitoring staff and ensuring alcohol is not sold to under-age drinkers.
“We take serving to under-age drinkers very seriously and are keen to work with all licensees in the city to ensure it doesn’t happen.
“On this occasion, that’s not necessary because of the robust stance these premises take.”
