Pubs caught out in po­lice li­cence check

Ashbourne News Telegraph - - NEWS -

NOT one out of eight pubs that were vis­ited by po­lice of­fi­cers dur­ing a Fri­day night op­er­a­tion in the town cen­tre was found to be fully com­ply­ing their li­cens­ing terms.

And, of the eight town cen­tre pubs, three of those vis­ited failed to check the ID of un­der-18 volunteers sent in by po­lice to see if they would be served.

The three who failed the sur­prise test have all been given fixed penalty no­tices but Der­byshire po­lice says it can­not name them be­cause of data pro­tec­tion and be­cause cases are on­go­ing.

The other five pubs are all now work­ing with lin­cens­ing of­fi­cers to im­prove their prac­tices around the li­cence re­quire­ments. No ac­tion has been taken against them.
