Rugby off-licences praised for booze ban

OFF-LICENCES in Rugby have been praised after refusing to sell alcohol to an underage youngster.

Trading standards officials and police officers carried out an undercover operation using a 15-year-old volunteer at 11 shops in the town.

The youngster was asked to try and buy booze from each shop but on each occasion was challenged and no sale was made.

Warwickshire county councillor Richard Hobbs (Con, Aston Cantlow), portfolio holder for community protection, said: “Under age drinking is a very serious problem so I am delighted that off-licence retailers in Rugby are taking their responsibilities seriously and not selling alcohol to children.”
