An investigation has been launched into an Uckfield business allegedly selling alcohol to children.
The probe follows “intelligence” uncovered by Wealden Police.
A police officer has visited the location and an investigation is under way.
News of the investigation in Uckfield follows Wealden Police saying it had identified premises in Crowborough where alcohol sales to a 14-year-old had taken place with the sales assistant prosecuted.
“We take a zero tolerance approach to those that place children at risk,” a police social media statement said.
“It’s a crime and will be dealt with robustly.”
The police have also asked members of the public to report suspected booze sales to children via 101 or Crimestoppers 0800 555 111.

“Our licensing PC will follow up all information received,” said Wealden Police.
On June 14, this website reported that police were cracking down on illegal alcohol sales to young people. See here
The move follows great concern in Uckfield over anti-social behaviour which has seen two public meetings with police this year and the town council discussing how it can support the action currently being taken.
