Undercover sting operations in Nottinghamshire, reveal that an identity card featuring the handsome cartoon face of Bobby Hill from the TV show King of the Hill is enough to let underaged teens to buy beer:

More than half of the 22 shops tested by the county council trading standards operation either served the teenager alcohol without asking for identification, or accepted fake ID, even though it identified that he was underage.

A total of seven stores failed to ask for identification and six checked his false ID card but still sold him the alcohol.

The Daily Mail has the story.

  1. We do the same. It’s not safe for the young people to be running around while we’re setting up. One girl tried to help once and injured herself trying to put out the table tennis table. There’s also the issue of when you are responsible for the young people. We make it clear to parents that we are only responsible for them when they are in the building and that we will not open the doors until 8pm. Don’t feel guilty, you have to set boundaries. It might help if you explain why to those who normally arrive early.
