Four out of five shops in Cam, Dursley, Berkeley and Wotton-under-Edge refused to serve alcohol to underage test purchasers during an operation in the area over the weekend.

A 14-year child and 15-year-old child who had been asked to take part accompanied an officer from the local policing team as they visited a supermarket, newsagents and off-licences.

The officer waited outside while the children attempted to buy various alcoholic drinks.

Staff at all the shops except a newsagents in Wotton-under-Edge refused to let the children buy the booze, representing an 80% success rate.

The staff member at the shop that failed had to pay a fixed penalty notice and the manager was spoken to by officers.
