A woman has been fined, because she asked her daughter to reach to the top shelf for some alcohol for her.
When she got to the till she was refused the 4 bottles her daughter got off the shelf. She then left the store, loadd up her car and returned on her own and got the alcohol, but staff still refused to let her purchase it, saying they thought she was supplying a minor. She took the bottles she had with her leaving the shop with the exact amount of money and walked out of the store. Later the Police called to her home and issued her with a fixed penalty notice.
Note in all of this there is no proof of her supplying a minor, only someone's suspicion of the the intent to supply. It'll be interesting when it goes to court. From the video accompanyning the report, I get the impression shes not a woman to be messed with!
