We have two officers who lead on underage sales issues. They co-ordinate our work, advising and enforcing a wide range of legislation controlling a variety of age restricted products. The products that they deal with include alcohol, cigarettes, fireworks, knives, lottery tickets, videos and DVD's, computer games, spray paint, cigarette lighter gas canisters, glue and other solvents.
Shops that sell age-restricted products are advised of the law and their obligations. Shops are usually visited in person and given educational material including videos which can help with staff training. If you have some information that may help us contact Citizens Advice consumer service on 08454 040506.
