Police in Welshpool have revealed a substantial amount of alcohol was seized from under age drinkers over the Christmas and New Year period.

In October it was identified at a PACT meeting (Partners and Communities Together) that the local community wanted police to tackle issues with underage drinking.

Sergeant Darren Brown from Welshpool Police Station said, "We listened and a substantial amount of alcohol was seized from youths in Welshpool and surrounding areas.

"A number of teenagers believe that they can handle drinking alcohol and the effects that it provides. This is clearly not the case as experience shows that youths who are drunk can and do get involved in Anti Social Behaviour and with criminal matters.

"It is important to stress that it is an offence to purchase alcohol when underage, to serve to a person underage and to purchase for a person who you know to be underage," said Sgt Brown.

"Quality of life issues such as alcohol misuse and anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated and we will endeavour to deal with these issues positively with our partner agencies to improve the quality of life for our residents."

All issues can be reported on the new Dyfed-Powys non-emergency number of 101 or via e-mail at welshpooltownnpt@dyfed-powys.pnn.police.uk.
