THREE licensed premises in Long Eaton have been caught out selling booze to under-18s.

During a joint council, trading standards and police test purchase operation, youngsters were sent in to buy alcohol from 13 pubs, clubs and off-licences.

Erewash Borough Council would not name the premises which were caught out but said that, as a result, they have slapped two with fines and one is facing possible prosecution.

Anyone who has concerns that alcohol is being sold to someone underage should call licensing on 0845 907 2244.
