FULL backing to the Godmanchester Co-op for refusing to sell four cans of lager to Ms Morris (The Hunts Post, December 9). This shows a responsible attitude by the Co-op.

How is the Co-op meant to know that Ms Morris wouldn't have given the cans to her nephew outside the shop or that she was not undercover police or trading standards, all of whom are cracking down on underage drinking?

The Association of Chief Police Officers warned earlier this year that 50 per cent of young drinkers were getting alcohol from their parents.

In the U.S.A. it is against the law to buy or consume alcohol under the age of 21 maybe we should adopt the same approach here. It is a well-known fact that alcohol and anti-social behaviour go hand in hand.
