Bromsgrove shop has alcohol licence revoked after under-age sales find

A BROMSGROVE shop has had its licence to sell alcohol removed after inspectors found it was selling age-restricted products to underage customers.

UK Mini Market, Worcester Road, was investigated by the Worcestershire Trading Standards Team which also uncovered illegal tobacco and cigarettes.

Licensing officers from Worcestershire Regulatory Services also investigated the premises and uncovered the business was not complying with the conditions of their licence to sell alcohol.

Sub-committee members met to review the licence and were provided with evidence from Worcestershire County Council’s Trading Standards Team and the Technical Licensing Officer who carried out the inspection.




The licence holder for the premise, Sozan Qadir Taha, was also present to provide evidence.

Members of the sub-committee concluded that, considering the evidence, the business would have its alcohol licence revoked as the premises had failed to promote the licensing objectives of both crime and disorder, and of protection of children from harm.


Worcestershire Regulatory Services’ licensing and support service manager Kiran Lahel thanked officers and the Trading Standards team for their swift action.

She said: “We will continue to work with and advise licensed businesses to ensure they are operating safely and avoiding future risk of illicit or underage sales.”

The owners can appeal up to 21 days from receipt of decision.

In this time, they are still entitled to sell alcohol under the licence.

They are further permitted to sell alcohol, if they appeal, until the court makes a final decision.
