Worthing shop has licence suspended over ‘industrial vodka’

Have your say

A SHOP in Worthing had its licence to sell alcohol suspended for three months after displaying “industrial” vodka on its shelves.

At a meeting of Worthing council’s licensing and control committee at the Town Hall on Monday (April 23), the committee decided the licence holder of the Premier Supermarket Express, Hassan El Samad, had acted “irresponsibly”.

Trading standards found eight bottles of unbranded vodka on sale in the shop in South Street, Tarring, which had been purchased for £50 from someone who walked into the shop.
