Booze Buying Warning

Four out of ten children in the south-west say they have got an adult to buy them booze.

A Plymouth University report is warning more kids are also ordering alcohol online.

Experts say it is because shops are cracking down hard on ID.

Redruth off-licence owner Ajay Singh admits proxy-buying is a big worry: "When we scan any alcohol or cigarettes it pops up on the till 'Customer over 25?' If the customer looks under 25 we always ask for ID. We've also put a up a special camera outside the shop so that if someone's standing outside sending anyone in to buy the drink - we can spot them.

"If we go to the shop and buy for someone else's kids, then someone will buy for our kids. All older people should think before they buy. They're buying for someone else's kids and that drink can harm them really badly".
