Police in West Berkshire have told Heart they've sent out warning letters after catching children as young as nine drinking on the streets.
Heart's got hold of figures from police - who're sending out around 20 yellow warnings letters every single month to parents of teenagers in the area.
80% of those letters relate to alcohol and being caught drinking in public - with numbers going up over the Summer. Only 20% have to be followed up with a second warning letter with 5% going onto get a read letter which will result in a voluntary written acceptable behaviour contract being drawn up.
