Police show off alcohol seized from kids

Posted Thu 3rd July 2008 at 10:07

Police in Alderney have seized a vast quantity of alcohol from underage drinkers in the last 12 weeks.

More than 40 bottles of beer, 40 cans of lager, five bottles of wine and five bottles of vodka have been taken from children at various locations, including the graveyard at St Anne's Church.

Special Constable Paul Maurice (pictured) believes older teenagers are buying the booze for youngsters.

He said: "Occasionally teenagers take the alcohol from home without their parents' consent but we have found that young adults aged 18 to 20 tend to buy it and give it to their younger friends or brothers and sisters."

Three cans of cider, two bottles of whisky and a bottle each of sherry and champagnewere also seized.

SC Maurice said: "Hopefully this will help stop youngsters drinking on the streets."
