East London and West Essex Guardian Series: A 15 year-old was served alcohol inside the Leytonstone store A 15 year-old was served alcohol inside the Leytonstone store

A shopkeeper has been ordered to £1,200 following an investigation into the underage sale of alcohol. 

The investigation by Waltham Forest Council's Trading Standards team was carried out in October of last year.

Enforcement officers together with the police and children under the age of 18 visited a number of retail premises across the borough. 

A 15 year-old walked into Eko Supermarket in High Road, Leytonstone and bought a WKD alcopop. 

Following the undercover act on October 19, a prosecution was launched against shopkeeper Sinan Aydemir. 

The 39 year-old appeared at Thames Magistrates Court last month and pleaded guilty to one charge of selling alcohol to a person aged under 18. 

He was fined £470 and ordered to pay costs of £700 and a victim surcharge of £47.

There are too many of these badly run shops. The word on the street is that illicit sales are the only way they survive, with some selling products that are counterfeit and of course to underage persons. Also, some are known to deal in drugs. Greater monitoring by the invisible police is required.

That's Marylebone High Street where Lord Cornbeefur hangs out when he isn't sockpuppetting and trolling as Cranberry et al.
