A Harold Hill convenience store that repeatedly sold alcohol to children will find out today whether or not it can keep its licence.

The Grange Express store in Grange Road will go before the borough’s licensing sub-committee at Romford Town Hall this morning after underage volunteers working with Havering’s Trading Standards Services team were able to purchase alcohol on two separate occasions in April and August.

Further concerns have been raised by police that the shop is not currently carrying out its duties to protect children from harm, as it has not been abiding by the Challenge 25 rule.

These issues have seen Havering Police urge the licensing sub-committee to “give serious consideration” to revoking the premises’ alcohol licence altogether.

The report from Havering’s licensing team also concludes that such drastic action might be necessary.

Be sure to visit the website later this week to find out the committee’s decision.
