Man Fails Alcohol Test Purchase

A man from Daventry has had his Personal License suspended for three months and has been ordered to pay £1,140 in costs at Northampton Magistrates Court where he appeared for trial on April 7, having been found guilty of selling alcohol to underage individuals.

This followed a 'Test Purchase of alcohol' by children aged 15 and 16 last November at the Red Lion in Hellidon near Daventry, where he is the Designated Premises Supervisor.

The defendant, a Personal licence holder, was invited for interview at Daventry police station where he was interviewed on tape and made a full admission, then reported for summons.

The Home Office are committed through the Government's Alcohol Harm Reduction Strategy to the need to impact upon the increasing issue of public disorder and anti- social behaviour that arises from alcohol misuse.

The court may under Section 129 of the Licensing Act 2003, on conviction for a relevant offence, order the forfeiture of the Personal Licence or order it’s suspension for a period not exceeding six months.
