Protecting children from harm is a priority for the Council’s Public Protection Service. Trading Standards works closely with partners, including the Licensing Service and North Wales Police to restrict access to alcohol by under 18s.

Roger Mapleson, Trading Standards and Licensing Lead, said, “Another excellent result for licensees and its reassuring to know that young people would have difficulty buying alcohol in any of the premises visited.”
