Hundreds of cans of beer — and dozens of bottles of hard liquor — have been seized from underage boozers drinking on the streets of Ilkeston, the ‘Tiser can exclusively reveal.

Police officers confiscated alcohol from children as young as 12 who they found drinking on the streets. Booze seized ranged from super-strength beers and ciders, to high-strength spirits including whisky, brandy and vodka.

The figures have been released after local police, working with other partners, increased patrols around hotspots.
