Eight out of 10 East Lindsey stores pass the under-age alcohol test
Two Skegness off-licences are to get written warnings from Lincolnshire Police after eight out of 10 East Lindsey businesses passed a 'secret shopper' test.
Trading Standards officers and the police force organised visits by under-age teenagers to the stores.
Two 16-year-olds and a pair of 15-year-old volunteers were part of a team who were asked to attempt to buy alcohol in stores at Holton le Clay, Skegness, Ingoldmells, Mablethorpe and Alford.
It was part of the Association of Chief Police Officers' (ACPO) Alcohol Harm Week of Action - and the test purchases took place during the daytime last Saturday, September 21.

The teenagers who called in at Jaychand, in Drummond Road at Skegness and the Skegness News World (Apex) shop in Roman Bank in the town were only asked for their ages.
As no proof was required both stores have been given warnings and will be re-tested.
Staff at the other eight shops all asked for proof of age being 18 or over and no further action will be taken.
They were the Star Supermarket, in Louth Road, the Lincolnshire Co-operative, in Pinfold Lane, and the Spar in Louth road - all in Holton le Clay.
Kwik E-Mart, of West Street in Alford, the Day-Today Convenience Store, in the Book in Hand Complex on the High Street in Mablethorpe, and the Apex Local Store, on Wainfleet Road at Skegness all asked for full ID.
So did staff working at the Day-to-Day Convenience Store at Archways, Sea Lane, Ingoldmells and the Jai Superstore, in West Street at Alford.
