AN undercover operation has revealed two Alsager off-licences were prepared to sell booze to under-age drinkers.
Police working with Trading Standards sent child stooges into the on Friday.
Later they said that two the four off-licences tested were prepared to sell beer and spirits to children without asking for proof of age. They now be prosecuted and fined.
Sergeant Gareth Woods, of Congleton Borough Community Action Team (CAT), said: 'What causes the greatest concern is that the public in Alsager voted at the community action meetings for us to target youth nuisance in and around the town.
'The majority of youth nuisance is fuelled by under-age drinking. We have highlighted that two licences continue to sell alcohol to the under-aged.
'Effectively they are adding to the problem as opposed to helping to solve it.This is clearly totally unacceptable.'
Police also worked with educational welfare officers to weed out persistent truants during Friday's swoop. Eight truants were picked up from the town centre and nearby addresses. Education officers are in the process of enquiries, which could result in prosecution of parents. parking was also targeted throughout the 'impact day' and a number of drivers were issued with tickets and warning notices.
Five addresses were visited by court warrant officers working with police and £300 in unpaid fines was recovered.
