Carnival no fun for under-age boozers
Police seize alcohol and warn parents.
THIRTY-two cans of lager and 10 bottles of alcohol were seized from under-age drinkers during Honiton and District Carnival.
“The seizure of this alcohol has resulted in eight letters being sent to parents informing them of the actions of their child,” said a police spokesperson.
Parents have been warned their children face prosecution - if they are caught twice again within the next 12 months with alcohol in a public place.
During the night, police also issued one direction to leave notice under Section 27 of the Violent Crime Reduction Act and one fixed penalty notice of �80 after a person was caught urinating in public.
