UNDER-AGE alcohol sales have landed half a dozen shops with on-the-spot fines.
Police cadets aged 16 and 17 visited 12 convenience stores across the borough as part of London-wide Operation Big Wing, half of which illegally sold them alcohol.
Those caught selling under-age alcohol at each of those six shops were issued with £80 penalty notices for disorder. They were also warned if the shop is caught breaking the law again the manager faces a fine of up to £20,000 and could be stripped of the licence.
The visits were part of a three-day licensing crackdown by the Metropolitan Police, resulting in 411 arrests across the capital for offences ranging from tax avoidance to immigration fraud.
In Hounslow, officers visited more than 100 premises, between April 26 and 28, to check they were complying with licensing condition.
The stores fined were: Sunnys, Green Parade, Whitton Road, Hounslow; Brothers Supastore, Staines Road, Bedfont; Jag Food and Wine, Harlington Road West, Feltham; Meet Food and Wine, Harlington Road West, Feltham; Producty Polski, Vicarage Farm Road, Heston; and Sarin Superstore, Cranford Lane, Heston.
