Licence to sell booze revoked

A DONCASTER shop has had its licence to sell alcohol revoked after counterfeit alcohol and cigarettes were found there.

Around 266 litres of counterfeit and non-UK duty paid alcohol was seized, including wine, beer and vodka, with an approximate value of £2,000 at the shop in Kings Road, near the town centre.

Officers also found over 1,000 counterfeit cigarettes valued at approximately £165.

A criminal investigation is now being conducted by the police and trading standards.

Andy Steele, licensing officer for South Yorkshire Police, said: “I am pleased with the partnership approach in confiscating a large quantity of counterfeit alcohol and cigarettes from the shop ensuring it doesn’t end up on the streets.

“We will always take positive and robust action against premises which do not adhere to their licence.”

Residents are encouraged to report the sale of counterfeit goods.
