A Kettering town centre shop has had its alcohol licence revoked after selling alcohol to an underage volunteer during a police sting.

Kettering Council held a meeting to discuss the alcohol licence of Dalkeith Convenience Store, which also trades as Paul’s Stop and Shop, in late October.

A spokesman for the council said the licence had been revoked following a police operation in September in which an underage volunteer was not challenged when they bought alcohol.

The shop has until Thursday, November 28, to appeal against the decision.
