Shop's drinks appeal rejected

AN appeal by an Aigburth newsagents which had its license to sell alcohol revoked has been dismissed. PRM News and Wine, of Lark Lane, had its licence cancelled by the City Council's Licensing Sub-committee in February.  Merseyside Police asked for the licence to be reviewed after they made a joint visit with immigration officials and an illegal worker was found to be working at the premises. The Alcohol and Tobacco Unit, who also staged a joint visit with Immigration Officers, said that they found 156 bottle of illicit wine at the shop. They also provided evidence that there has been proxy sales during a Bank Holiday weekend and staff had served alcohol to a customer who was drunk. The sub-committee said they had no faith that the premises licence holder understood his responsibilities under the Licensing Act or that he would continue to run the premises without undermining the licensing objectives and felt that it was appropriate and proportionate to revoke the premises license.  PRM appealed this decision at Liverpool Magistrates Court, but District Judge Wendy Lloyd dismissed the appeal, meaning the shop will no longer be able to sell alcohol with immediate effect. Councillor Steve Munby, cabinet member for neighbourhoods, said:- "Decisions to revoke licences are not taken lightly but in this case there were clear breaches and the court has ruled that the decision was justified."
