Police chiefs in South Yorkshire are promoting the use of Pass 18+ cards for young people to prove their age.

The new proof of age card was officially launched nationally last week and now South Yorkshire officers are urging people to sign up, to avoid them having to carry valuable forms of identification, including passports, into pubs and clubs to prove they are over 18 years old.
